Critic Reviews of "Into the Forest"L.A. WeeklyAugust 01, 2016
This isn't torture-porn dystopia; it's a singular, honest, heartfelt portrait of sisterly devotion at the end of the world.Entertainment WeeklyAugust 01, 2016
Page and Wood, who are both in their upper 20s, hardly make for convincing teenagers, but they both lend weight to Eva and Nell's sisterly bond as the two siblings slowly unravel.Rolling StoneJuly 29, 2016
Rozema's minimalist approach pays dividends until a final third hobbled by overdone effects and a thrashing musical score. Too bad. The story being told on the faces of Page and Wood has eloquence and power.Los Angeles TimesJuly 29, 2016
Walks a blade's edge between terrifying and uplifting... Rozema has a careful but unflinching eye when it comes to presenting the physical and emotional traumas the sisters experience.RogerEbert.comJuly 29, 2016
A strong, smart and moving end-of-the-world drama that is further bolstered by strong performances from co-stars Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood.New York PostJuly 28, 2016
Wood and Page generate a believable, prickly sibling closeness in Rozema's unhurried but harrowing micro-portrait of how easily civilization could crumble.La Nación (Argentina)March 09, 2017
The director handles the fraternal relationship with warmth and security in the staging, both in the moments of conflict and in those more calm or minimally comforting. [Full review in Spanish]Irish TimesDecember 27, 2016
Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood are as impressively understated as the direction.El antepenúltimo mohicanoDecember 12, 2016
A vision of the apocalypse as humanistic as emotional, that offers a painful and sincere look at the female universe of its protagonists and its hard beginning into adult life. [Full review in Spanish]Cinemanía (Spain)November 22, 2016
A film that becomes the dramatic tale of two sisters who don't know how to live together or separated and suddenly discover that the forest in which they live is much better than the out of stock supermarket in the city. [Full review in Spanish]Cinemalogue.comNovember 07, 2016
Such a scenario is provocative in an age of technological overload, but the screenplay turns into a muddled mood piece rather than capitalizing on its inherent urgency.Film Comment MagazineSeptember 06, 2016
Nell and Eva's relationship forms the heart of the film and, along with the fleeting moments of ecstasy they find in things previously taken for granted, their bond provides something of genuine beauty in a progressively bleak world.
