This hectoring visual style becomes particularly irritating in combination with his rigid social stereotyping.

O'Grady is very good, but she can't make the hard-to-watch Rid of Me dramatically credible.

Unconvincing tale of self-empowerment has attitude and anxiety but nothing underneath.

Westby's nervy story is like "Desperately Seeking Susan" played straight. Let's hope O'Grady's next film meets this one's potential.

Comes at you like a horror movie before settling down into something quieter but equally skin crawling.

Think of it as a coming-of-age story ten years too late.

Rid of Me is a bad movie, but at least it's a flailing, innocent badness.

Bracingly original, alarming and droll, the righteously ribald Rid of Me should prove a breakthrough for helmer James Westby and his producer and leading lady, Katie O'Grady.
