In the New York Times Holiday Movie special section, Karen Durbin singled out the actors to look for in the future in her article "Star Turns Under the Radar." One of was Adepero Oduye for her remarkable performance as Alike in Dee Rees' PARIAH. For Durbin, "Oduye is blessed with a megawatt smile, but apart from that she's a master of understatement. Without having to say or do a lot, she draws us close to Alike and keeps us there. We can tell when she's hurting, and we hurt too. As with most gay adolescents, the pain of otherness is inevitable."
