An introvert, Little Voice, can only manage to express herself by singing along to records in her room, in the timeless voices of Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, and others.

Entertainment Weekly by

The movie adaptation suffers the symptoms of so many stage-to-screen transplants: What seemed thrillingly big and bold in live performance comes across shrunken and hemmed in when "opened up" to fill a feature film.


TV Guide Magazine by Ken Fox

Actress Jane Horrocks is so good in this drama that you'll hardly notice -- or care -- that the rest of the film isn't quite up to snuff.


Chicago Reader by Lisa Alspector

Many of the elements in this story about a woman who's nearly eclipsed by her overbearing mother are all too familiar, yet the combination is utterly charming.


The Globe and Mail (Toronto) by Rick Groen

Ultimately, Little Voice comes to us from an indeterminate place that is no longer the theatre but not quite the movies. Let's call it music videoland -- best just to sit back and enjoy golden-oldie tunes belted out by a quicksilver mimic.
