Raw, funny and incredibly moving.

Cath Clarke, Time Out, 2016-05-11

 

The story isn't particularly original, but Mustang's achievement is to criticize a society that sexualizes everything women do while still celebrating the girls' sexuality.

Elaine Teng, The New Republic, 2016-02-18

 

Erguven isn't peddling blind optimism so much as a realism animated by the belief that freedom-far from being inevitable-must be fought for. That it will be fought for.

Lenika Cruz, The Atlantic, 2016-01-21

 

That there are five sisters allows Erguven to explore the scenario's several possible outcomes, be it happy ending or tragedy or the bittersweet fates in between.

Nathalie Atkinson, Globe and Mail, 2016-01-15

 

Erguven's film, beautifully shot and beautifully performed, cuts its storybook tone with starker, more brutal truths.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2016-01-15

 

Part of a welcome international wave of films made by women directors that focus on girls growing up in worlds of men - and on what they look like when no one's looking.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2016-01-14

 

Erguven and cowriter Alice Winocour have a keen understanding of teenage impetuosity and adult cruelty.

Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader, 2016-01-14

 

Among Erguven's finest achievements with "Mustang" is casting such mesmerizing actresses to play characters who would be just as at home in a Chekhov production or an Instagram-worthy fashion shoot.

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, 2016-01-14

 

The issues at play in "Mustang" are gravely serious but the tone and rhythm is brisk, headlong and intelligently lively, like the women at the center.

Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, 2016-01-14

 

"Mustang" puts its cultural stamp on a story gripping in its ageless universality and gutting in its modern urgency.

Barbara VanDenburgh, Arizona Republic, 2015-12-31

 

It is surprisingly nuanced and even something of an adventure tale about a fight for freedom and identity.

Tom Keogh, Seattle Times, 2015-12-29

 

It's a moving portrait of sisterhood, a celebration of a fierce femininity and a damning indictment of patriarchal systems that seek to destroy and control this spirit.

Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times, 2015-12-29

 

[A] beautiful, harrowing film.

Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2015-12-29

 

You root for these characters all the way.

Tricia Olszewski, TheWrap, 2015-12-29

 

It speaks a touching international language of frustrated youth that anyone can understand.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2015-12-24

 

The impressive film not only underscores the clash between traditional and modern values, but also provides inspiration for deciding your own fate, even when the world seemingly doesn't give you a choice.

David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle, 2015-12-24

 

Mustang offers some nearly surreal looks into a culture fixated on virginity and women as spoilable objects.

Alison Willmore, BuzzFeed News, 2015-12-04

 

"Mustang" is the debut feature of Deniz Gamze Erguven, and it's quite something: a coming-of-age fable mapped onto a prison break, at once dream-hazed and sharp-edged with suspense.

Anthony Lane, New Yorker, 2015-11-23

 

"Mustang" grabs you with its own sense of haunting melancholy, as well as an increasing feeling of urgency and outrage.

Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com, 2015-11-20

 

Full of life even as it depicts lives in lockdown, "Mustang" is a stunning debut feature by Deniz Gamze Erguven about five sisters in rural Turkey.

Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, 2015-11-19
