Village Voice
Electrick Children juggles heavy things, with humor and sobriety in their proper, Book of Ecclesiastes turn. Best of all, Thomas has an aversion to the easy resolution—she knows precisely which mysteries to keep dangling. Full Review
Chuck Bowen
Slant Magazine
Rebecca Thomas's debut feature is a sensible and humane exploration of youthful curiosity. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
This material could so easily have tipped over into false sentimentality, but everyone works with a steady hand. Rebecca Thomas makes an assured debut as both writer and director, the gifted Culkin is excellent as always, and Garner finds lovely shades of nuance in Rachel’s innocent faith. Full Review
Gary Goldstein
Los Angeles Times
Though unevenly told and at times too fanciful for its own good, Electrick Children marks an intriguing feature debut for its risk-taking writer-director, Rebecca Thomas. Full Review
Paul Bradshaw
Total Film
Careful, kids – rock’n’roll can get you pregnant. Or that’s what one Mormon teen believes in this cute lo-fi indie from first-timer Rebecca Thomas. Full Review
