Deadpan hilarious, shockingly violent and a sweetness that's occasionally just as shocking.  
The Hollywood Reporter

The most emotionally accurate portrayals of adolescence I’ve ever seen.

The End of the F***ing World gets under the viewer’s skin with sharp, bloody intensity.

Aesthetically distinctive, highly stylized, and fully formed, telling a love story that you wish would go on.
The Atlantic

A compelling, stylish take on the violent, romantic crime-thriller.

The End of the F***ing World is an effing triumph.
The Radio Times

It’s outstanding – acerbic, tender-hearted and fearless.

Mesmerically fine…dirty and wonderful.
