The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
Grashaw's convincing drama distills this underexposed world into the story of a single young man trying to survive a system designed to break him.
67
Entertainment Weekly - Chris Nashawaty
The best thing about it is its star, P.J. Boudousqué, who locates a sense of terror and betrayal that the script lacks.
60
Variety - Peter Debruge
Suitable for teens — lies somewhere between indignant expose and unusually tasteful exploitation picture, with shower scenes and sweaty young delinquents aplenty.
50
Village Voice - Sam Weisberg
Coldwater is almost boastfully grim.

RogerEbert.com - Brian Tallerico
The final act of Coldwater is horrendously misguided, the kind of insincere melodrama that erases the memory of what came before. It’s a particular shame because there’s an hour of decent filmmaking here.
