« The windswept, wild-maned ‘Sweet Thing’ boasts beautiful performances and a definite throwback charm. » - VARIETY

« The first paces of ‘Sweet Thing’ feel as they are taken from Charlie Chaplin’s ‘The Kid’. By iris-in, iris-out, long shot cuts into close-ups, the director Alexander Rockwell conveys a really fresh and intimate nostalgia. » - FILMFESTIVALS

« Sweet Thing is also stunningly rendered. All three kid actors are incredibly talented, and the film makes very strong use of music, which includes multiple examples of Lana Rockwell’s fine singing. » - Goomba Stomp
