Critic Reviews for Happy Face

All Critics (7)

Never going where the audience expects it to, Happy Face weaves several genres together to create a unique tale of grief and acceptance.

Happy Face has a lot to say about what the definition of beauty is and the extremes those desperate enough to attain that status might go through. Sometimes the people who seem healthiest are the sickest people on the planet.

October 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The film attempts to deconstruct and break down people's prejudices and forces them to face what thoughts they might hide.

October 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There's real heart at its core, and its nakedly empathetic yet unbeatific treatment of its unconventional cast is something rarely seen in cinema.

The humanity and raw power from the therapeutic dialogue in some of their scenes was unexpected for Fantastic Fest, an event not exactly known for booking emotionally resonant dramas.

September 25, 2019 | Full Review…

A charming tale that affirms that it is the soul that makes you beautiful, not your outward appearance. Happy Face is the perfect film to watch when you want the evils of the world to disappear for a little while.
