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. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Sep 10, 2015

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. – Scott Foundas, Variety, Sep 15, 2015

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. – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times, Sep 18, 2015

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. – Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter, Sep 15, 2015
