'A tender, delicate film that doesn’t talk down to the depressive mentality, nor makes a spectacle of it either, Enjoy is an ironic title for a mind frame that’s heartbreaking to experience, but suitably fitting for a film that treats its subject with respect.’

Patel has proven himself as an introspective and thoughtful actor, and when he discovers his own passions, his entire being changes. It’s a performance imbued with careful elegance. The film never wallows or holds our hand in a condescending way. It is refreshingly honest.'

'The direction and visual quality are brilliant, paired with terrific writing, the two go hand in hand superbly. Patel, Stewart and Sweet all give layered, touching performances that help to push the film’s atmosphere of honesty and understanding even further. It’s relatable, moving and sincere.’

‘Both genuine and heartwarming, while grasping themes of mental health, Enjoy triumphs in its small-life story… If there’s a Patel train, I’m jumping on right now.’

‘Filmmakers aren’t always able to present the topic so elegantly… Enjoy is wonderfully constructed, it’s honest in its representation of struggle and depression, and it reminds viewers that even in the pain, there is beauty.’
