#1 on Buzzfeed! “Simien’s feature debut is a sharp, hilarious, intelligent, fast-moving, Election-like examination of race on a fancy, mostly white college campus. I had high hopes for this movie, and they were all met. Exceeded, actually. The performances, especially Thompson’s and Williams’, were so nuanced and likable. I found myself trying to remember the movie’s jokes as I heard them, because they were so on-point and repeatable. Like this one: “Dear White People on Instagram: You own an iPhone and you go on hikes. We get it.” So funny! And sweet, and good-hearted. Also, I would argue that there’s never been a good movie about college? But now there is.” - Kate Aurthur

Our first review from IndieWire / Shadow & Act
"This is a political film, but it would do it a disservice to slap it with something like “race-themed” and send it on its way. Because with all its nuance, Dear White People is funny. Like, really funny. And for the black viewer, a cathartic kind of funny. Some of the most amusing moments are the ones that catch the racial micro-aggressions of white people and hold them up to the light - comments like, “But you’re only technically black!” But what’s brilliant here is that the movie, while it does call white people out, is not merely an angry indictment on them, but a satire that breaks down all the archetypes, all the stereotypes that we as black people have about each other: the overcompensating militant “lightskint” girl, the Angry Black Man, the “But I’m not like other black people” type.
