Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: By the end you may not be a fan of her music, but it's hard not to root for her rebirth.
Fresh: Much like the image of Wright presented by the movie itself, "Wish Me Away" is graceful, sincere and heartfelt.
Fresh: What it lacks in artfulness, Wish Me Away makes up for in emotive force.
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.
