Critic Reviews for Porcupine Lake

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Indy filmmaker Ingrid Veninger strives earnestly to create an iconic Canadian coming-of-age story. It isn't entirely successful.

February 22, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Remarkable performances by the two young actors at the centre of the film -- along with assured, subtle storytelling by director/screenwriter Ingrid Veninger -- propel this cottage country coming-of-age drama.

September 12, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The performances from the two young leads are particularly strong, and they are amply supported by the older actors in the film.

Veninger has bottled that very precise moment when a young girl is trying to figure out the woman she's going to become.

February 23, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Sweetly-told tale of a tween summer best-friend crush has its own very Canadian vibe. But it has universal appeal to anybody who remembers how it felt to be an awkward age.

February 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Porcupine Lake is carried on the shoulders of its young stars, who, with guilelessly natural performances, act circles around their more experienced costars.
