by Linda Holmes [NPR]
“..a feel-good film about how a sexual surrogate helps a polio victim conquer virginity could be a popular hit with the right handling..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..a film of tenderness and humor married to the unlikeliest of subjects..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
