Screen International by Wendy Ide
“An engrossing and thoughtful portrait of contemporary China.”

indieWire by Steph Green
“STONEWALLING offers a precise view of a particular kind of Gen Z ennui.”

ICS by Marc van de Klashorst
“STONEWALLING is testament to the idea that to build a compelling narrative one does not have to rely on excessive dramatic gesture.”

Slant Magazine by Sam C. Mac
“STONEWALLING is an attentive, engaged character study, an uncommonly candid women’s picture, and a film of dense and considered sociopolitical implications.”
