Actor's Express, 2009

It's impossible to describe how good this cast is. Ms. Mantella, with her dark hair and alabaster skin, is mesmerizing and manages to be vulnerable and tough as nails at the same time.
— Manning Harris, Atlanta INTown, In The Loop

Part of the fun is watching Jackie’s transformation from clueless “lamb" to scheming fox... Mantella, for her part, is astonishing as a young woman who’s pushed to the brink.
— Wendell Brock, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Mantella convincingly plays Jackie as young and desperate, but also shrewd enough to stare down a potential gangster with a vicious temper and a briefcase full of money.
— Curt Holman, Creative Loafing
