The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
As much about deception as it is the fear of being forsaken, White Lie unfurls to become an unexpected empathy inquest.
Directors Calvin Thomas and Yonah Lewis deserve credit for taking a gutsy leap with the subject matter and delivering without pulling any punches.
We Got This Covered
As a timely testament to our willingness to validate and support rather than investigate, White Lie is both insightful and terrifying.
The Film Stage
Helped by a strong lead performance that’s neither too big nor too small (just look at the pitch-perfect pinched reactions from Rohl every time she’s challenged on her lie) the film maintains a strong sense restraint amidst all the deliberate discomfort.
The Hollywood Reporter
Driven by nuanced, persuasive performances and shot with an urgent, jittery tension, White Lie is a compelling close-up character study of a recklessly needy anti-heroine caught in an impossible dilemma of her own making.
