“This brilliantly funny, casually profound and deeply affecting coming-of-age chronicle, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon from a screenplay by Jesse Andrews, even manages to be life-enlightening – it’s a fresh take on contemporary adolescence as a journey from ironic detachment to openhearted feeling. . . .” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“A smart-ass charmer, merciless tearjerker and sincere celebration of teenage creativity. . .” – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter

“Blending wit and modesty, Mann fits the bill, coming across as an overgrown kid with a good heart, but virtually no practice in relating to others – which is perhaps the thing that makes his experience so profoundly relatable.” – Peter Debruge, Variety
