Movie Reviews

TV Guide Magazine - 10/10 by Maitland McDonaghCornish's raw, nuanced performance and Shortland's sympathetic but unsentimental portrayal of Heidi's fumbling steps toward maturity are underscored by Sydney-based band Decoder Ring's catchy, angst-ridden score.
New York Times - 10/10 by Stephen HoldenSomersault, which the Australian Film Institute garlanded with 13 awards, including best film, director, actor and actress (for Ms. Cornish's astonishing performance), is a movie about the looks on people's faces and the disparity between the surface and the roiling chaos beneath.
New York Post - 9/10 by V.A. MusettoShowcases a brilliantly realistic performance by Abbie Cornish as Heidi. She's a provocative mix of naivete and ripe, unbridled sexuality. - 9/10 by Sarah WardSomersault isn't simply sensitive to the mindset of its protagonist, but rather adopts the character's yearning, searching, testing and experimenting mood as its own.
Compuserve - 9/10 by Harvey S. KartenIts central character, a 16-year-old who uses sex for intimacy, just might be the clue to the emotions that a great many teens go through.
Flipside Movie Emporium - 9/10 by Rob VauxAs a psychological portrait, it's indelible. As a filmgoing experience, however, it definitely requires patience.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 9/10 by Sean AxmakerThe annoying shaky-cam style so common to such indie dramas is toned down to a dreamy sway and the image drifts in and out of focus in scenes of heightened emotions. It's like waking from a daze and getting your bearings; the effect is both unsettling and calming.
Los Angeles Daily News - 8/10 by Bob StraussOften harrowing and traumatically tough-minded, this fine Australian film is ultimately about growth and some of the better attributes, like self-knowledge and forgiveness, that ideally come with it.
Los Angeles Times - 8/10 by Carina ChocanoDreamy and creepy, tender and terrifying, Somersault is a frank and visceral film that at the same time exudes an unexpected innocence.
Chicago Reader - 8/10 by J.R. JonesThis beautifully understated feature (2004) revolves around sex, but it's neither erotic nor puritanical; its young characters are governed by their urges, but the experience itself seems as neutral and mysterious as sleep.
