    Hide and Seek is one of the most bewitching and elegant British films of the last decade.

    Ollie Charles , Front Row Review

    Hide and Seek is an extremely thoughtful example of how, even on a tight production budget, it's possible to make an aesthetically arresting, intelligent British indie drama

    Patrick Gamble, Cine-Vue

    A valuable, insightful and magnificent piece of filmmaking.

    David William Upton, So So Gay

    A truly unique film, especially in its intoxicating presentation of sexuality and the human condition.

    Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit

    Every so often a filmmaker will come along that will change the game, Joanna Coates is one of these filmmakers.

    Ollie , Front Row Reviews

    A liberated frenzy of intimacy and tenderness that has little to do with the popular imagination of unbridled free love in a society that has practically demonised it throughout history.

    David González, Cineuropa
