"[T]heres something appealing about the movies relative quiet....Every so often, Ms. Rozema also folds in a beauty shot of the lushly green forest, with its dense flora and chirping, snuffling fauna." - 07/28/2016 New York Times
"What INTO THE FOREST has steadily in its favor are two fiercely-committed performances from Wood and Page, who also produced. Their sisterhood, with all its centered devotion and frayed emotions, feels genuine." - 07/29/2016 Rolling Stone
