Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Hide Your Smiling Faces" conveys life as the boys experience it: a pungent mixture of boredom, curiosity, fear and mischievousness, along with an anxious sense of being trapped. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Mar 27, 2014

Fresh: Narratively oblique yet emotionally acute. – Guy Lodge, Variety, Feb 21, 2014

Fresh: Environment is very much a character here, and it's movingly apparent that Carbone, with sensitive cooperation from cinematographer Nick Bentgen, shot the film where he grew up. – Jonathan Kiefer, Village Voice, Mar 25, 2014

Rotten: [It] focuses on unspoken adolescent feelings instead of familiar puerile events, with cliches held at arm's length. Unfortunately, Hide Your Smiling Faces is so slow it could use a few action sequences to speed things up. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Mar 27, 2014

Hide Your Smiling Faces

One of the best films about the loneliness of adolescence within a family I have ever seen.


this is one of the best movies i have seen all year! impeccable storytelling and absolutely stunning to watch. recommending to all my friends - a gut-wrenching yet poignant coming of age movie. must see

Gut wrentching and inspiring

One of the best coming of age movies in recent memory, Hide your smiling faces is a masterful portal of trying to grow up in a confusing world. Where everything is seemingly falling apart. A friends tragic and meaningless death sets off a series of events that help the kids of the small town learn to cope with what life throws at them am carry on. Learning what it means to grow up.
