Movie Info

16-year-old Eva (Fivel Stewart) is an overachiever who dreams of becoming a comic artist someday. With how overbearing her parents are, however, she knows that that will never happen. As a way to cope with the pressure they feel on the daily, she and her best friend Liz (Brenna D'Amico) create Vicky and Veronica, their alter-egos. They also compile a number of things they would never do and coin it The Never List. When Liz tragically passes away, an angry and grief-stricken Eva vows to do everything on the said list to honor her best friend's memory. Directed by Michelle Mower.

Critic Reviews for The Never List

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Houston director Michelle Mower, working from a script by Ariadne Shaffer, has made a sweetly serious film about friendship, trauma and not letting yourself get lost.

While Fivel Stewart is a compelling performer, even she cannot inject sense into the insensible.

April 27, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The Never List is one of the least inspired films to ever tackle the coming-of-age subgenre.

March 28, 2021 | Rating: 2/10 | Full Review…

This unconventional coming-of-age story features a female-driven narrative and strong young women characters that will speak to teens worldwide.

February 16, 2021 | Rating: 3 / 5 | Full Review…

What keeps The Never List from being a shallow diversion is that [the filmmakers] consistently acknowledge that the chemical recreation the two fictional girls engage in sometimes has catastrophic consequences in the real world.
