Her mother avoids emotions with pills, her father spends all hours of the day at his job, and her classmates treat her with fragility;however, Echo is anything but fragile.

Critic Reviews for Saving Zoë

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

But even with the occasional voiceover narration, the film can't quite replicate the appeal of Noël's original, where a lot of the action is internal, dealing with these women's opinions and feelings.

Unlike in some dead girl stories, we do get Zoë's perspective of events but the film, based on the novel of the same name by Alyson Noel, sticks close to the formula throughout.

July 21, 2019 | Full Review…

While it taps into contemporary teenage angst, this low-budget thriller lacks the narrative dexterity to make its weighty ideas feel more provocative.

July 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Saving Zoë honestly should have stayed a book.

July 12, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Competent but stolid mystery thriller whose ladies/siblings -- the Marano sisters -- can't lift into something moving or special.

July 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Saving Zoe is, ultimately, a lightweight film about a serious subject.
