Village Voice
An intermittently engaging tale of father-and-daughter bonding (and non-bonding) set against the backdrop of the 2006 Israel-Lebanon War. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
Director Maya Kenig's film never decides whether it wants to be a social satire, a familial drama or a parable about Israeli life during perpetual wartime; that it neither picks a route nor cohesively combines any of those strands doesn't make a fairly generic father-daughter story any more colorful.

New York Post
The performances are so uniformly good that it's a shame the characters are stuck with such a listless plot. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
The winning performances by its two leads elevate this contrived Israeli import. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
Poised unwaveringly between gentle comedy and delicate drama, Maya Kenig's Off White Lies keeps a lot to itself. But this narrative withholding, while infuriating at times, presents no real barrier to our engagement with the film's unconventional look at the growing connection between a shy teenage girl and her shiftless father.
