    Press

    Claustrophobically intimate.

    Alissa Simon, Variety

    Brides is a technically competent drama with an edge of political protest, well-acted and handsomely filmed.

    Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter

    The one constant is the strength of Kitia’s performance. Nutsa is aloof but never distant, guarded but never completely opaque... one of the best performances of the year so far.
