A must watch.

Charismatic characters, perfectly drawn, that are going to catch you. [Full Review in Spanish]
October 23, 2018
The film is daring enough to earn your goodwill early and as it unfolds, it's refreshing to see a film about relationships that aims for the head more than the heart.

It is a work that raises an interesting debate about the importance given to monogamy... and the consequences that could result from ceasing to practice it. [Full review in Spanish]

Watching Permission, it is inevitable to think that a North American puritan will never be able to reach the truth of a French hedonist in regards to sexual behavior. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 7, 2018
An episode of Sex in the City with the mentality of another Friends [episode]. [Full Review in Spanish]

[Permission's] moral dilemma has the depth (and the same reactionary ideology) of 'Indecent Proposal'. [Full review in Spanish]
July 22, 2018
Ultimately, under the guise of maturity, Permission turns a promising premise into a juvenile and destructive display of emotionally immature people.

Credit this uneven relationship drama for at least following through on its outlandish premise.

I want to like or, at least, be positive about every film I see. I cannot do that here.
February 15, 2018
An indie rom-com being released just in time for Valentine's Day, Permission is notable for what it does. And ultimately for what it doesn't.
February 15, 2018
[Brian] Crano's screenplay navigates these tricky waters with insight and empathy for everybody on screen, while refusing to offer anyone an easy out.
February 15, 2018
Permission creates a compelling case study of adult relationships. With the direction of Crano he gives us a romantic drama that provides us with a heavy dose of romance, but also focuses on its decline.
February 15, 2018
The film delights in some aspects, disappoints in others, does a deft job of depicting the sloppy, senseless mess that adulthood and adult relationships inherently are.
February 15, 2018
Nearly every minute the camera is focused on her, [Rebecca] Hall wears a vague, faraway look of uncertainty, as though she is contemplating the past, present, and future all at once.
February 9, 2018
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.
February 9, 2018
(Director Brian Crano) gives Permission a tremulous tone that's in turns sexy, tender, and heart-trembling.
February 9, 2018
What is most unexpected about Permission is its sense of poignancy and tenderness. In its own way, it's quite heartbreaking.
February 9, 2018
Strong performances and an interesting premise combine to make Permission an entertaining adult romance.
