    Press

    Tightly woven, with a brisk pace that still has room for non-stereotypical local color.

    Dennis Harvey, Variety

    A sharp, affecting film that's brimming with darkness and hope, every instant of it vividly alive.

    Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter

    The film shines a spotlight on two compelling American actors — both on the cusp of stardom in their own ways — and reintroduces us to a third, whose true calling might have been found behind the camera.
