From this pastiche Joplin emerges as we've never seen her before, articulate, ambitious, torn between
her wild self and her desperate need for stability.
-Lorraine Ali, Los Angeles Times
Sweet and wild and vividly alive, she takes a little piece of your heart when she goes.
-Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
It grounds us so effectively in Joplin's emotional realm as to partially rekindle the social transcendence that
her voice must have represented for its owner.
-Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
It's the satisfying feature-length overview that Joplin's brief, fiercely brilliant career has long merited.
-Guy Lodge, Variety
