Fresh: By the end you may not be a fan of her music, but it's hard not to root for her rebirth. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, May 31, 2012

Fresh: Much like the image of Wright presented by the movie itself, "Wish Me Away" is graceful, sincere and heartfelt. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Jun 14, 2012

Fresh: What it lacks in artfulness, Wish Me Away makes up for in emotive force. – Andrew Schenker, Village Voice, May 29, 2012

Fresh: The unshakable support of her religious sister, the raw and heartfelt stories of her childhood: These are the moments most likely to provide the inspiration she hopes to share. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, May 31, 2012
