A Suitable Girl is an overwhelming testament to the power of patriarchy and the continued struggle of women to gain agency over their lives.” – Shubhodeep Pal, The Hindu

“Oscar worthy. It’s impossible to not be moved by ‘A Suitable Girl.’” — Clay Cane,

“A fantastic film…It was like getting on a plane and experiencing another world.” — Susan Kolker, New York Times
