Las niñas bien

Critic Quotes: “With this subtle drama about high-society social maneuvering, writer-director Alejandra Márquez Abella essentially transplants Edith Wharton’s thematic concerns to Mexico City in 1982.” – Chicago Reader

“Márquez Abella proves a thoughtful and measured filmmaker, filling her beautifully shot melodrama with subtle, but effective characterizations.” – Remezcla

“The Good Girls is a nice piece of social and cultural criticism, and Salas makes for a formidably icy matron. It’s a cool, contained effort.” – Screen International
