Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: This carefully observed slice of life is dragged down by the dreary and distracting hand-held camerawork.

- Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post, Friday, September 21, 2012

Fresh: This thoughtful but exceedingly modest miniature will be best nursed within the festival circuit.

- Guy Lodge, Variety, Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Rotten: There is recognizable pain throughout Ledes' film. Yet it never pushes through to anything beyond a surface portrait.

- Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, September 27, 2012
