Reviews

A quietly accomplished debut... propelled by a performance of stunning psychological insight and raw feeling from Batchelor.
– David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
Batchelor turns in one of the year’s best performances, profound work that twists an already propulsive concept into a riveting character study.
– Kate Erbland, Indiewire
Engrossing, well-acted. A sharp debut feature.
– Dennis Harvey, Variety
