“This ‘coming-of-age-thriller’ is brought impressively to life by Anna Kazejak and takes the turmoils and traumas of teen-romance to a whole new – and rather dark – level.”


“The Word revamps a long-established revenge formula with a fresh and satisfyingly dark take on a coming-of-age scenario.”


“With a clear vision, fluid direction, and engaging, detailed performances, The Word is one of the most sure-footed films this year. Eliza Rycembel makes one of the most memorable film debuts.”
