--The Florida Times Union
"Powerful fiction ... Candler handles her difficult material with skill and conviction. "
--Scott Macaulay, Producer,Gummo, Raising Victor Vargas
"Candler demonstrated a deep understanding of teen anxiety, angst and alienation. An emotional, smart movie."
--Moving Pictures Magazine
"Understated 'Bridges' perfectly captures teens' lives."
--The Tallahassee Democrat
"A moving work that addresses the hard-to-swallow subject of teen suicide with grace and sensitivity."
-- Indiewire, Mike Tully
"As realistic a narrative
portrait of love, death, and human debris as anything you're ever
likely to see onscreen."
--The Austin Chronicle
"Kat Candler's moving Austin-made teen drama has enjoyed sold-out crowds and raves."
"Don't be swayed by famous (or even semi-famous) names during the (SXSW) film festival. I had better luck with Austin Director Kat Candler's moving jumping off bridge."
--American Way Magazine
ability to take some of the darkest and most jagged truths about
fear, regret, sadness, loss, suffering and pain and break them open
for her audience to experience in ways that are both optimistic and
honest makes her one of the most important and promising young
filmmakers on the cinematic landscape."
"Candler is very much in touch with a particular sort of teenaged sensibility. She knows the difference between sadness and the petulance it is often mistaken for, and she treats her sullen girls and boys with the sort of patience and understanding their parents (and, perhaps, some audience members) can never quite muster."
--Ain't It Cool News
"jumping off bridges is a wonderfully delicate,
authentic portrayal of teenagers and their families."
"Deserving of art-house play. Unconventional and risky and aching for your patience, but will reward your perseverance."
"The soundtrack is amazing!"
--Gorilla vs Bear
