Quotes:

“IT MAY BE A TIMELY FILM, BUT IT IS ITS TIMELESSNESS, AS WELL AS ITS DEPTHS OF COMPASSION, THAT QUALIFY IT AS A GREAT ONE.”
- Ryan Gilbey, The Guardian

“STUNNING, DEEPLY INVOLVING.”
- Jessica Kiang, The Playlist

“SHOCKING AND ENRAGING, FUNNY AND SURREAL, RAPTUROUS AND RESTORATIVE, THIS IS A FILM OF STARTLING INTENSITY AND SINUOUS MOOD SHIFTS WRAPPED IN A ROCK-SOLID COHERENCE OF VISION.”
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“DRIVEN BY A POWERHOUSE PERFORMANCE BY MESMERISING VEGA, THIS FILM COMBINES URGENT NATURALISM WITH OCCASIONAL FLICKERS OF FANTASY TO IMPRESSIVE AND WRENCHINGLY EMOTIONAL EFFECT.”
- Wendy Ide, Screen International
