The critical consensus

Despite its genre leanings, it's an authentic, celebratory and surprisingly moving exploration of the euphoria, and melancholy, of youth.

****(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 15/05/2017

For all its verve and creative enthusiasm, Spaceship’s oblique and flighty nature leaves it feeling decidedly niche.

**(*)(*)(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 17/05/2017

Director Alex Taylor has established himself as a talent with his short films and I wanted to like this, but it feels humourless and smug.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 18/05/2017

Poor dialogue and plotting hamper this neon-toned alien abduction feature.
