    Press

    ...a solid issue-driven drama straight out of the Dardenne Brothers/Ken Loach/Andrea Arnold school of handheld social realism.

    Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter

    ...well-acted, steadily absorbing realist drama (...) If the story is fairly straightforward, the emotions always feel true, the technical contributions richly atmospheric.

    Justin Chang, Variety
