PRAISE FOR IMITATION GIRL...
“Devoid of violence or threat, the film may in no way qualify as horror (although it is certainly science-fiction) – but as a portrait of female identity, in all its hopes and disappointments, joys and sorrows, Imitation Girl inspires a shudderingly sublime sense of awe that is not ultimately defined by male desires and demands.”
- BFI, Sight & Sound
“…boasts not just Lauren Ashley Carter’s best performance, but her two best.”
- SciFi Now
“…a gentle tale about identity and what defines us… 2017’s gem.”
“…achieves a feminist fairy-tale with a shivery existentialist twist.”
"...a compelling examination of love, sex, race, identity and basically the human condition. All done in 84 minutes. See it. Accept no substitutes."
- Electric Shadows

“…Imitation Girl soars on Lauren Ashley Carter’s performance, and Kermani shows great promise as a thought-provoking and fascinating cinematic storyteller who isn’t afraid to push the envelope.”
