Christian Science Monitor

By David Sterritt
Superbly acted, movingly written, and directed with a tough-minded lyricism rarely found in today's films. A summer movie to love.

This is as wonderfully realized an observation of female affinity as 1999’s great "The Dreamlife of Angels."

Pawlikowski has made a romance that becomes a horror movie in which love, more than anything around it, is a delusionary fever to fear.

My Summer of Love may sound like the title of a hot teen flick, but it is a truly refreshing grown-up big-screen film, a rare gem in this summer of duds.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Ray Bennett
Some of the metaphors are a bit too literal but the director largely succeeds with his story and the surprises are convincing. Best of all the film has a terrific sense of humor and the young actresses exploit it delightfully.

At its most interesting, the movie offers us the sight of people desperately embracing faith in the hopes it will pull them through.
