More Info:
  • Ty Burr

    The heroine’s voice-overs, delivered into the microphone of a Bell & Howell tape recorder in Minnie’s bedroom, are the movie’s motor. They’re proud and insecure, profanely comic, dripping with adolescent wisdom and self-absorption.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    Marielle Heller’s debut directorial effort is incisive and universal, despite its very specific and detailed setting.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    One needn’t have first-person experience with, or even approve of, the extremes Minnie pursues to appreciate the honest, forthright way Heller and Powley present a journey that, stripped to its most basic emotional elements, is timeless and universal.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Movies concerned with the life, the mind, the body and the dawning self-respect of a 15-year-old girl running every sort of risk — these are rare. The Diary of a Teenage Girl is one of them, and it's terrific.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rebecca Keegan

    A rare gem of a movie.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The novel is life-specific, but what makes Minnie — on the page and now on the screen — greater than any one girl is how she tells her own story in her own soaringly alive voice.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Lee Marshall

    It’s this adoption not only of Minnie’s point of view but the voice and narrative style of her half girlish, half womanly outlook on life that makes The Diary of a Teenage Girl such a vibrant, hopeful film.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    It’s morally complex and sometimes uncomfortably close to the bone, but also lushly bawdy and funny, and packaged together with an astonishing degree of cinematic brio by first-time writer-director Marielle Heller.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    A remarkably vibrant and frank look at one precocious teen’s emerging sexual life — a film with the stuff of life coursing through its veins and sex very much on its brain.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    As unsettling as Marielle Heller’s feature-film debut can be — there are moments you’ll ache for Minnie and other ones where you’ll want to lock her away — it rings much truer than most coming-of-age stories.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Gregory Ellwood

    For all of Heller's impressive direction, she could have delivered something soulless without Powley's contributions.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Anisha Jhaveri

    As told through Heller’s acutely sensitive vision, the result is less off-putting and more of an authentic insight into a perspective grossly underrepresented in American cinema.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The result – believable, hopeful, tender, delightful – is a movie of (increasingly rare) truly indie sensibility, made by women who are confident about healthy feminine resilience.

    Time Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    [Wiig's] great, but the film's in the pocket of Powley's rib-high corduroys from the second she struts onscreen — and long after she takes them off.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The Diary of a Teenage Girl is the rare movie that presents the subject of the loss of virginity from the female perspective. Not only is the film unique in this regard, but also in its frankness, humor, and artistry.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    An honest and personal and unblurred examination (even through that druggy blur) of a tricky voyage into womanhood.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Films often fail to capture the turmoil of being a teenager — but not this one.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Nathalie Atkinson

    That it’s unsettling not just because of the contentious moral context underlines just how radical any realistic depictions of female desire and sexual experience still are.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Sheila O'Malley

    The result is a film that is funny and sad, scary and sweet, disturbing and revelatory. Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Powley is sensational, expertly blending hilarity and heartbreak. Her scenes with Wiig, sublime in her hard-won gravity, are unique and unforgettable. Just like the movie.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Elise Nakhnikian

    True to its title, Marielle Heller's adaptation of Phoebe Gloeckner's semi-autobiographical novel has the loosely structured, unfiltered feel of a young person's diary.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    What it doesn't do -- and this is what makes this "Diary" different -- is let what happens define her or ruin her.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    The movie’s dedication to girls everywhere is unnecessary; it already feels so specific and true without it.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    As uneven as it can be at times in its last fifteen minutes, Marielle Heller has crafted a super promising debut that evokes the idea of unlocking the secret world of teenage girls and letting us live inside the special little jewel box if ever so briefly.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The first thing to know about The Diary of a Teenage Girl is that young British actress Powley is staggeringly good in it.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    Young women have desires too, and the unsinkable, uninhibited Minnie finds that a little self-belief can make up for a lot of bad decisions.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Busy British newcomer Bel Powley is extraordinary as the teen finding her identity in mid-1970s San Francisco.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Phil de Semlyen

    Minnie’s inner life, a fantasia of animations appearing Crumb-like around her, is dazzling, and there’s plenty of naked emotion amid the sex, drugs and hand-drawn penises.

    Empire Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    What a ballsy film and honest too.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    This adaptation of Phoebe Gloeckner’s heavily autobiographical novel is ideally cast and skillfully handled.

    Variety Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    You don’t often hear the adjective “uncomfortable” used as a compliment. But you’re seldom going to come across a movie that makes you as uncomfortable as The Diary of a Teenage Girl yet seems as true to life.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It is not a pleasure to sit through, not even remotely, not even by some stretched definition of the word “pleasure.” It’s work, but it’s ultimately rewarding work. It tackles some truths that other movies wouldn’t touch, not even with a stick and thick gloves.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Debut director Marielle Heller’s spent a lot of time with this material — she wrote and starred in an off-Broadway adaptation — and her confident direction of Powley, Skarsgård and Wiig, fused with a Polaroid-evocative palette and a glam ’70s soundtrack, makes this an indelible coming-of-age story.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The sex is explicit and frequent and pretty much covers the spectrum. The drug use that accompanies it cringe-worthy. No man could have ever gotten away with adapting Phoebe Gloeckner’s novel in such frank terms.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    It’s not that this material is, or should be, off limits in a movie. But The Diary of a Teenage Girl isn’t exactly “Lolita.” Heller must think that taking a moral stance is tantamount to selling out. Commercially, she may be right. In every other respect, she’s wrong.
