"GROOMED was outstanding. So well done, thoughtful and truly courageous on so many dimensions. I applaud Gwen’s strength and persistence and her commitment to building community and empowering many others to share their stories. As a mom, it was powerful and a film I will actively support in my parent community as everyone should see it, know about grooming and learn."
"There are just so many feelings that come having watched Groomed: first and foremost Gwen’s courage to talk about. Most people would not mention. Maybe few would tell the story. Nobody I know would put their first, raw and unprocessed reactions on the screen.
The story is beautiful, powerful and delicate all at the same time."

"I am sitting here not only feeling admiration for Gwen but anger at how desperately poor the judicial system is, once a grooming victim has the bravery to act on what’s happened to them."
"By aspiring to be as brave and as self-aware as Gwen demonstrated in the film, I was able to have a breakthrough in my own PTSD. I believe her film has the potential to literally save lives and she captures all of that meaning in a 1 and 1/2 hour riveting film."
"What a remarkable film -- artistic, emotional, cause-worthy and thoughtful. Thank you for your bravery, thank you for sharing your talent and thank you for opening up the hearts and minds of those around you."
