Critic Reviews for Permission
A small story made with big performances from leads Stevens and Hall, and while it hasn't gotten the promotional push for audiences to pay attention, people lucky enough to stumble across it will fall for everyone involved.
What is most unexpected about Permission is its sense of poignancy and tenderness. In its own way, it's quite heartbreaking.
You kind of want to slap everybody in Permission, and that's kind of the point.
While it deals with heavy relationship issues including the validity of monogamy, it manages an easy, seemingly effortless humor that seduces the audience while simultaneously breaking filmgoers' hearts.
Stevens and Hall are always interesting to watch. (In fact, you should watch him in "The Guest" and her in "The Awakening," if you want to see two excellent, lesser-known films.)
