  • Simple Women is ultimately a moving and intelligent exploration not of the phenomenon of stardom itself, but of the complex mechanics that underpin our own capacity to invest such deep emotional feeling into the act of being a fan.

  • Simple Women makes for an interesting examination of false effigies and washed-up idols and one thing's for sure, the two women in focus are most certainly anything but simple. And that makes for good cinema.

  • Malta should be commended for her distinctive style, but Simple Women has the same problem as countless first-time feature films: too many ideas and too little depth.
