The critical consensus

The non-professional Manyaka is outstanding in the lead role of the truth-seeking girl, who boldly dares to confront the bigotry of the adult world, and the stirring resolution feels hard earned rather than manufactured.

****(*)Tom Dawson, The List, 20/04/2011

A tough but very rewarding watch.

****(*)Anna Smith, Empire Online, 23/05/2011

Occasionally stirring but the manipulation grates.

Matt Bochenski, Little White Lies, 26/05/2011

It's an incredibly assured performance from Manyaka...naturalistic and nuanced enough to ensure the emotions the film evokes are hard-earned.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 28/05/2011
