“MUSTANG is a gripping film, and one that ought to stir up a bit of controversy in Turkey.” – Jordan Hoffman, Guardian
“What begins as a playful look at five young women’s rebellion against their strict upbringing soon becomes something far more stirring and emotional.” – Tim Grierson, Screen International
“What makes the transfixing film so effective is that the director refuses to portray them simplistically, as misunderstood angels, and she has enough trust in her audience to leave the drama’s implicit feminism unstated. ” – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
“The exuberant life and liveliness that spills off the screen and the effortless sororal chemistry between these young actresses are compelling reasons to seek out Mustang.” – Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
