Press Quotes

It's an engaging, amusing and occasionally jaw-dropping portrait of a world that could hardly be more foreign to most documentary fans.

Dan Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter

Jawline explores what's unique about social media stardom without overemphasizing its novelty, so the film works as a dissection of modern digital celebrity, but also a classic story about beautiful young people struggling to get famous.

Adi Robertson, The Verge

JAWLINE prods the contradictions of the authenticity-industrial complex.
