Much like the image of Wright presented by the movie itself, "Wish Me Away" is graceful, sincere and heartfelt.

By the end you may not be a fan of her music, but it's hard not to root for her rebirth.
-Jeannette CatsoulisFull Review
The unshakable support of her religious sister, the raw and heartfelt stories of her childhood: These are the moments most likely to provide the inspiration she hopes to share.

What it lacks in artfulness, Wish Me Away makes up for in emotive force.

'Wish Me Away' is not just another doc on coming out; it's a unique story from a brave woman whose truth was more important than fame and glamour.
-Clay CaneFull Review
Worthy if at times heavy-handed doc about the first country-music star to publicly say, "I'm gay."
-David NohFull Review
While it's fascinating to observe the workings of the mammoth apparatus grafted onto an intensely personal decision, the movie's heart is the moments that take place in private.
-Sam AdamsFull Review
Ultimately too concerned with courting the singer's fans to deliver anything more than a theatrical release of a very special episode of VH1's Behind the Music.
-Chuck BowenFull Review
A deeply affecting documentary that chronicles the coming out of Nashville singer Chely Wright, and the anguishing criticism she faces from conservative country and western fans.
-Jennifer MerinFull Review
By honestly telling her story country western star Chely Wright has made a powerful, unforgettable coming out story stripped of melodrama yet unexpectedly heartbreaking.
