WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

100

Film Threat by Bobby LePire

Due to outstanding writing, stylish, dazzling direction, and a breathtaking, radiant performance from Kelly McCormack, the drama never lets the audience go and proves to be a searing examination of its young protagonist and the society she lives in.

The Film Stage by Jared Mobarak

McCormack and Morgan aren’t interested in sanitizing the messiness that goes into a woman accepting herself outside the men’s world she was born into. It’s why finding financing took years. It’s also why Sugar Daddy is so uniquely good too, though. They’ve put an honest, coarse, and authentic human being on-screen who’s breaking through the façade she didn’t even know she was helping to cultivate.

Original-Cin by Liam Lacey

Sugar Daddy impresses as an idiosyncratic film with a forceful visual style and sound design, attached to a familiar story about the ways of bad men and a young woman getting lost in the fast life.

Movie Nation by Roger Moore

Sugar Daddy is a mature, artful and disturbing peek into being “open minded” about something that borders on “sex work,” and sometimes crosses that border.
