Press Quotes

Sotomayor lays great store by looks and glances, implying entire emotional states with how and where her protagonist’s gaze lingers.

Jay Weissberg, Variety

Time passes at a gradual pace in this self-contained world, and Castillo’s filmmaking absorbs that ubiquitous feeling, with languid scenes of neighbors sitting around strumming guitars, smoking pot, and gazing at the vacant landscape.

Eric Kohn, Indiewire

Castillo develops a masterful sense of multiple circumstances unfolding at once — the partying, the music, a clandestine makeout session and a neighborhood brawl — before merging them together in a remarkable finale that suggests the end of one major life chapter and the start of something new.
