Danielle Nussbaum from Teenvogue.com reviewed 'Tanner Hall':
Went to the premiere of Tanner Hall tonight, and was super impressed. Set at a boarding school in the bucolic New England countryside, this coming-of-ager recalls the soft golden glow of The Virgin Suicides. Of course, that's where the resemblance ends. Teens Fern (Young Hollywood alum Rooney Mara), Kate (Brie Larson), and Lucasta (Amy Fergusen) aren't sisters, but they are best friends who live together year round--and that's a very complicated twist on the same thing. And newcomer Victoria (Brit Georgia King) enrolls and adds her own drama to a perilously angsty situation. The girls do their share of arguing, harassing the dorm mother and her English teacher husband (the goofy coupling of Amy Sedaris and Chris Kattan), and sneaking around, but this isn't Real World: New Hampshire; it has actual depth. There are inappropriate love affairs (which may or may not include the perennially hot Tom Everett Scott), sexuality questioning, and of course, growing up to consider in this microcosm. And that's precisely what filmmakers Tatiana von Furstenberg and Francesca Gregorini--who also write and perform some of the songs on the well-curated soundtrack--convey. Relationships are tricky, life can be hard, but everyone has to grow up eventually. We get by with a little help from our friends.
