  • [New] | Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: [Bujalski’s] latest features one of his largest ensembles with a career best performance from Regina Hall and Haley Lu Richardson doing a complete about face from last year’s “Columbus” in a movie that explores how much of our identiities is defined by the work we do.
  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: Support the Girls is a charming and emotional day-in-the-life dramedy with another magnificent performance by Regina Hall.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Support The Girls is a simple slice of life comedy on the surface, but underneath all the workplace tangents is layers of commentary about being a woman working a thankless, low paying job that leaves them at the mercy of entitled men. However, it avoids cheap impulses, keeping its messaging understated and coming from a place of empathy and compassion.

    • Excerpt: It’s a soul-warming, endearing and entertaining piece of work.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Andrew Bujalski pokes at a unique slice of Americana – the breastaurant. Showing real girls with real problems and a real humanity, the film screws comedic holes into the modern American value of young girls paid to flaunt, flirt, and flatter.
  • [New] | Jared Mobarak @
    • Excerpt: These are flawed characters doing the best they can with what they have. And as long as they refuse a narrow black or white focus, happiness will remain possible.
  • Aramide Tinubu @ Shadow and Act
    • Excerpt: Support the Girls works well, not just because of Hall who helps bring dignity to what could very well be a very degrading world and job, but also because of the humor and heart sprinkled throughout the narrative.
