“FitzGerald and Davis are both excellent, convincingly turning
the smallest, most seemingly harmless discussions into highly charged
cat-and-mouse workouts.” – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
“ALWAYS SHINE is a deft, assured movie with a sly self-reflexive
undercurrent containing commentary on sexism and self-idealization
that’s provocative, and sometimes disturbing.” – Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
