"The actors have a breezy, unforced and entirely credible sisterly chemistry together"
- Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
"“Our Little Sister” is so meticulously shot and gracefully orchestrated that it can be considered a worthy contempo successor to Kon Ichikawa’s masterpiece “The Makioka Sisters.”"
- Maggie Lee, Variety
