Here is what the audience had to say about the film:

“It was a really honest film that really inspired me”

“I loved it. It struck a chord with me and made me think about teenagers from a different perspective”

“It made me cry and laugh”

“That’s a really powerful film! If you are a teenager or you have a teenager, I recommend you go see it!”

“It felt like it wasn’t even acting. So natural”

“I could relate to so much of this film. Most of the teenagers I know are like the ones in the film and most of our parents don’t understand us. It showed how we feel really well”

“Rites of Passage: a profound movie – all about challenges and choices and opportunities. It makes you think about your life, your own adolescence and also the people you have an impact on. A must see!”

“It really drew me in! Made me think!”

“The stories are full of so much energy, so much heart. It comes through the film, and that’s magic!”
