Critic Reviews for American Woman
Writer/director Semi Chellas, making her feature debut... [is]'s not afraid to whisper big questions, to make space for small, beautiful moments (pelicans!), or to keep things quietly tense. Because even a slow simmer eventually boils over.
The film is lively and detailed enough so it is never boring, but it never takes off dramatically or realizes its intriguing possibilities either.
"American Woman" tries to give us a fresh angle on a familiar subject, but the film is listless and desultory.
There are inklings of a biting story here about class, gender, and race, but the film's attempts to invoke these discourses through the lens of the 1970s feel thin and phony.
What American Woman lacks... is a script that allows any of this to grow and breathe into something stimulating or satisfying.
