All Critics (20) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (1)

  • Mu'min, who based "Jinn" in part on her own upbringing, approaches her protagonist's journey of self-discovery with a delicate sense of wonder and a striking lack of moral judgment.

  • Jinn holds several beautiful elements, especially in its central mother-daughter story.

    Nov 16, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Jinn is a special little film, one that never lets its complicated, contradictory characters become abstractions, but instead revels in all the disparate elements that make them who they are.

    Nov 15, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Mu'min shows great sensitivity as a director, drawing a remarkably carefree and naturalistic performance from her young star that makes her sympathetic, even when her character is behaving in selfish and hurtful ways.

  • Renee has a superhuman charisma. Yet the young actor makes audiences root for her while also allowing Summer to be rude and thoughtless.

  • There are good, admirable intentions, and there's the movie that results from them. Sad to say, Jinn consistently lets down its premise and performers.
