What are critics saying?


The Globe and Mail (Toronto) by excellent in the role, rendering Edith’s monstrous ambition with relatable (and frequently terrifying) conviction.


The New York Times by Ben Kenigsberg

The prickly tone is a difficult balancing act, and Diamond Tongues may settle for being a softer-hearted film than its most cynical scenes portend. But it has a palpable affection for Toronto’s cultural scene and for Ms. Goldstein.


The Playlist by Kevin Jagernauth

Diamond Tongues is refreshing because it isn't an indictment of a demographic, or even of Edith, but is a portrait of a young woman whose ambition has curdled into something more nasty along the way.


Consequence of Sound by Sarah Kurchak

Although it stumbles a bit at the end with a self-aware redemption that isn’t entirely earned or particularly in character, Diamond Tongues is still a brilliant and realistic portrait of the young artist as a bitter borderline failure.
