Mary F. Pols,
The performances are compelling (although Jones is underused) but the thin narrative is less instructive of the strange way female friendships operate than of the way stories get recycled.
New York Times:
Charmingly low-key, the British coming-of-age drama "Albatross" offsets slack plotting with creative casting and sensitive performances.
Innocence is lost -- as well as 90 minutes of your precious, precious time.
The lack of subtlety makes the story's familiar beats only more obvious.
Albatross shifts from indie fairy tale to farce, only to accept its fate as a coming-of-age melodrama.
