Movie Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by David Wiegand As finely crafted as a great work of literature.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by David Wiegand Lucía Puenzo's XXY is as finely crafted as a great work of literature.
EmanuelLevy.Com - 9/10 by Emanuel Levy To the director's credit, what could have been a clinical study or fact-based medical case instead unfolds as a touching coming of age tale focusing on the tender romantic angle.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert The shots are beautifully composed, the editing paces the process of self-discovery, the dialogue is spare and heartfelt, the performances are deeply human -- especially by Efron.
New York Post - 8/10 by V.A. Musetto Ines Efron and Martin Piroyanski give strong performances as Alex and Alvaro, respectively. Debuting director Lucia Puenzo, who co-scripted, tackles a dicey subject with sensitivity and taste.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 8/10 by Bill White Despite its sometimes creepy tentativeness, XXY succeeds as a meditation on gender and sexuality, one that refuses an easy answer to the question, 'Is it a boy or a girl?'
TV Guide Magazine - 8/10 by Ken Fox Efron's remarkable performance as a wild child who seems to truly exist somewhere betwixt and between is riveting.
NPR.org - 8/10 by Bob Mondello The movie's images are frequently startling, its performances sharply observed and quirky, and its take on its subject matter undeniably provocative.
Nick's Flick Picks - 8/10 by Nick Davis Even when the film overdoses on its own downcastness or on dubious similes and symbolisms, you can feel why the characters as well as the filmmakers are humbled in more than one way by the conceptual intricacies and the high emotional stakes of the essent
Guardian - 8/10 by Cath Clarke Unexpected and wonderfully thoughtful.
Chicago Tribune - 8/10 by Michael Phillips The acting is uniformly strong, the visual approach self-effacingly honest.
eFilmCritic.com - 8/10 by Dan Lybarger With 'XXY,' Argentinean writer-director Lucía Puenzo takes what could have been a movie-of-the week subject and instead delivers a thoughtful and deeply moving tale.
