Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: Inventive without being twee, quirky without being overly Wes Anderson, and suffused with a late-adolescent sense of longing as palpably felt as it is understated.

- Andrew Schenker, Village Voice, Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Fresh: Filled with clear, bright images and moments of skewed genius, this delicate debut effortlessly evokes those languid summer doldrums, when even a rotting girlfriend is better than no girlfriend at all.

- Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Friday, August 27, 2010

Fresh: The film invests in spacey horror tropes one moment, plunges into absurdist adolescent angst the next and begs questions every step of the way, but just about holds together.

- Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Wednesday, August 25, 2010
