“With oodles of Punjabi family charm (samosas included), a love story that leaves room for personal reflections, VENUS is both charming and hilarious….one trans person’s story that looks to explore life beyond the stereotypes, beyond the usual coming out and uniquely at unexpected parenthood.” – Rampage Magazine
“Heartwarming and an absolute delight to watch – with an infectious bilingual soundtrack, to boot, – VENUS…presents us with the hopeful notion that if a kid can embrace one’s gender identity, anyone can.” – The Georgia Straight
“A real extraterrestrial in the landscape of Canadian cinema, VENUS is a comedy that delivers what audiences are thirsting for onscreen.” – HollywoodPQ
