Reviews

  • "Drag is a form of self-expression, an act of political defiance and a means of reinvention in SOLO."
    - Screen Daily
  • "SOLO celebrates love within the queer community, and it does so beautifully. But what's even lovelier about SOLO is that it's a film about finding that love within yourself first."
    - Slashfilm
  • "Through Dupuis’s eye, this story is empathetic and involved, and this feeling persists..."
    - RogerEbert.com
  • "A dexterous film that combines bold images with the quiet beat of a heart torn asunder two ways."
    - TORONTO STAR
  • "Showing equal care for both the dazzling drag performances and the more delicate moments in the film, Dupuis delivers a beautiful reflection of the human spirit."
    - HUFFINGTON POST
  • "While SOLO situates Simon’s growth within a clearly defined chosen family, the film ultimately hinges on Pellerin’s performance. It’s a lively star-is-born turn in which one sees an actor fully come into his own."
    - XTRA MAGAZINE
  • "A radiant and intimate story of queer life” "A dazzling celebration of drag. Few films understand the power of drag like Sophie Dupuis's SOLO, a radiant and intimate story of queer life and a celebration of the queer community's connection to the art of drag."
    - SLASHFILM
  • "SOLO largely succeeds, thanks to Dupuis’ confident handling of the tonal shifts between off- and onstage scenes in a series of stylishly lit interiors. The performances feel grounded and credible, with Pellerin especially good in revealing Simon’s contradictions, between anxious vulnerability and resilience."
