Austin Chronicle
Sure, we’ve all seen this story before, but that doesn’t hamper this film from being enormously entertaining, with riveting performances, great beats, and poetic rhymes. Full Review
Aaron Hillis
Village Voice
Youssef Delara and Michael D. Olmos's variation on the too-familiar subgenre (the rising inner-city superstar here is a Latina tomboy) is more heartfelt, humanistic, and entertaining than such a clichéd showbiz cautionary tale has any right to be. Full Review
Amy Nicholson
Los Angeles Times
The cast keeps us invested in Filly's furious resurrection. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Melodramatic and gritty Filly Brown marks the debut of a magnetic screen presence in Gina Rodriguez, as well as the final performance of singer Jenni Rivera, who died in a plane crash in December. Full Review
David Rooney
The Hollywood Reporter
A dynamic breakout performance from Gina Rodriguez helps this rap-infused drama about a young Los Angeles Latina overcome its patchy storytelling. Full Review
