  • "[A] magnificently graceful, precise, yet quietly furious new film."

    — Richard Brody, The New Yorker

  • "With the Oscars expanding its horizons this year, it’ll be interesting to see if anyone gives worthier performances than Tallie Medel as a frustrated teacher’s aid, and Norma Kuhling as her magnetic but unstable childhood friend."

    — David Ehrlich, Indiewire

  • “A story of intimate friendship written and directed with a subtle touch by Dan Sallitt…. intellectual and loving… a bittersweet character drama.”
