AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Horse Girl proves unwilling or unable to explore the deeper themes it addresses, but this unusual drama is anchored by Alison Brie's committed performance.

Movie Info

Sarah (Alison Brie), a socially isolated arts and crafts store employee, finds herself more content in the company of horses and supernatural crime shows than people. But when a series of strangely surreal dreams upend the simplicity of her waking life, Sarah struggles to distinguish her visions from reality. Directed by Jeff Baena, Horse Girl is a darkly humorous psychological thriller about a woman's search for the truth, however abstract it may be.

Brie's performance is powerful and the film's editing does a superb job of mixing Sarah's obscured perception with reality, succeeding in offering an unsettling look into the mind of someone who suffers from a severe mental illness.

Brie is rawly convincing as a troubled woman for whom the sides of reality have become too slippery, transformed into the heroine of a private sci-fi melodrama.

February 12, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Brie's performance is open and honest and disturbing and funny and lovely and resonant.

February 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Ostensibly, this is a tragedy about mental illness... But "Horse Girl" is far more subversive and playful than just that, allowing for Sarah's peculiar reality to envelope our own.

I found the experience of watching Horse Girl to be more of a chore than a pleasure.

February 8, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The way Brie shows you Sarah slowly slipping out of reality-then steeply sliding further down a snake pit of instability-gives you the sense that she's flexing a new set of muscles.
