  1. Adam Whybray's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    Grim viewing for Christmas Eve, but I made my choice. Very effective as a silent film, but far less convincing with dialogue. Admirable for being a far less pervy and male-gazey alternative to Larry Clark's 'Kids', but probably not going to be watched by the very teenagers who might find it useful or comforting. UK gov. 'This is Abuse' campaign depicted unself-aware abusers like Patrick but with much broader reach.

  2. Laura Suffield's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    It's very nice to look at, almost to the point of being a bit soft-porny. It's also very, very boring, and as such is probably an apt reflection of teenage mores the world over. I gave up half way through.

  3. malbrown2's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    A good movie. Humans are complicated things and the training to become an adult is difficult to say the least. It has been captured very well in this movie. Nice work all.

  4. guillermo's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    Beautiful film about growing up. A tender look into vulnerability, female look. A lot of perfect frames. Desperate mood.

  5. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    Writer-director Eliza Hittman delivers an indie drama that is much like 1001 other indie dramas. The performance from the lead female (Gina Piersanti) helps, and there are a few very good scenes, but it's ultimately disposable fare, despite looking at an interesting chapter in the developing sexuality of a girl desperate to pretend she is ready to be a woman.

  7. Graham Ball's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    Fabulous... A sold 3.5 stars... I have to check out 'Beach Rats' now... It's a must!!!

  8. Sergey Belov's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    For those who had ordinary shitty awkward age, not the strangerthings one

  9. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    You can really breath with this film, it's so beautifully shot. For me the clue to the heart of the film is in the title "It felt like love".

  10. ssia22's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    It was... interesting. Made me think a lot of my teenage experiences. But there were some things I couldn't quite understand.

  12. Mtume Gant's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    Boys are awful. What a document needed about the roughness young women deal with in our modern male dominated hyper-sexualized culture 4.5

  14. Noli Manaig's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    Not many films portray the theme of sexual initiation with such insight and compassion, even fewer come from the female perspective. Discreet & unhistrionic in its approach to teenage dynamics, the protagonist here wears the ill-fitting mask of sexual willingness and maturity amid the promptings of peer influence & biology. This bildungsroman interrogates her on the threshold of a fraught rite of passage.

  15. amysimpson's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    slow moving and a bit lacking of substance maybe?

  16. lostlevel's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    I admit from time to time I like a little more drama, this film rather than play things up for drama rather some quiet tragedies occur. Not everything is explained so we can hazard a guess, which I think is better than some of the more exploitative movies in similar territory. I think it handled the themes well but this movie isn't for everyone it's a bit of a slow burn.

  17. Timbo of Boston's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    I am always surprised by the instincts of filmmakers who use the beauty and instincts of young actors to fashion patient, real, and honest films. This is a terrific example: sensuous and stylish, touching on the uncertainties of adolescent sexual awakening and anxiety, which can be confused with or replace love. The father relationship here is key. Gina Piersanti is a natural presence and no doubt will be a star.

  18. mkramerl's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    This is a solid four (for me). I think the weak story is intentional. The perspective is from a lonely and impressionable teenage girl. As an adult, I see that perspective as tenuous and inexperienced, which is what is portrayed. The existential quality here can make the film boring or interesting depending on whether the viewer can sympathize with the lead. As others have remarked, gorgeous cinematography.

  19. sarah simka's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    Captures an era really well.

  20. Nan Bauer's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    A lot of talent here, especially Sean Porter, the DP. As others have mentioned, beautifully shot. Young Gina Piersanti does a nice job. I'll keep an eye on Eliza Hittman; I found this one compelling and frustrating. Not perfect, but it'll stick in my head.

  21. Adam S. Hacker's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    Nicely shot. Lila's character is superb, however the Story is without anticipation. Would have made a nice short.

  22. Dory Bakiewicz Ehmer's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    three and a half. lead actor Gina is wonderful. resonated. loneliness - summer - young womanhood

  23. Marcos F.'s rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    Great cinematography, unconvincing script and performances.

  24. Matt Price's rating of the film It Felt Like Love

    One of the reasons movies are movies is because watching real life would be boring. Some movies do it right, but this one didn't grab me. Well framed shots and good presentation can only go so far...
