Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Breathe" conveys an uncanny insight into the psychology of late adolescence, when lingering childhood fantasies can combust with burgeoning adult sexuality in a swirl of uncontrollable feelings.
Fresh: An obsessive friendship between two teenage girls unfolds with equal amounts of tenderness and terror in Breathe, a modest but acutely observed and affecting adolescent portrait.
Fresh: The entire piece is precisely woven together, from script to performance to execution, and the result is a chilling study of emotional annihilation and its aftermath.
Fresh: Though the story has undergone quite a few changes, what's intact is the novel's grittiness and emotional honesty, which more than compensates for the occasional coming-of-age cliche.
