Critic Reviews for Angelfish
Lee coaxes moving performances from a young cast, and he beautifully captures the cultural nuances of the Bronx neighborhoods where his story is set. But he has a tough time finding much new to say with this tale of star-crossed lovers.
Destiny Frasqueri (better known to her Generation Z fans as Nuyorican rapper Princess Nokia) makes a winning, delicate screen debut in "Angelfish," a low-key Bronx romance that proves a surprisingly muted vehicle for her outsize performing charisma.
Lee's film plays it disappointingly safe, never deviating from romantic comedy conventions; there are no real surprises that you can't already see coming.
The perceptive and astute script, judicious direction, and affectless acting from a masterfully assembled cast, especially the two leads, make this simple story well worth your time.
