“Powerful film. Survivors must no longer be silent” - Ashley Judd

"Powerful and gut wrenching." - Jane Seymour

“Dealing with the trauma of childhood sexual abuse in a way rarely if ever seen onscreen... Thanks to a strong performance by star Auden Thornton, it pushes through despair and could attract attention at art houses, with appeal stretching beyond the abuse-survival community." - John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

“an exceptional piece of cinema” - Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film

“Auden Thornton... earning her LAFF Special Mention for Breakout Performance nod many times over for her convincingly raw performance” - Reggie Peralta, FilmBook

“The indie-drama ‘Beauty Mark’ will take viewers on an emotional journey that will most likely stick with them days after watching it... an intense plot that will enthrall audiences until the credits roll.” - Adriana Hymovitz, SoCal Muse

“Thornton's extraordinary performance conjures such powerful emotional  horror and desperation, that audiences have little choice but to be carried along with her into the dramatic vortex of her unrelenting plight.” - Prairie Miller, WBAI-FM
