2 of 5

“..the film is a beautifully-made slog; the confusing ins and outs of the teenage-adult transition are explored quite thoroughly (if not taken to the utmost extremes), but what's missing from its story is any sense of joy that doesn't feel ill-gotten..”
by Christopher Null [Filmcritic.com]
1.5 of 4

“..it unfolds in ways too predictable to be dramatically satisfying, at least has the virtue of feeling like something that's allowed to run its course without being forced into near abstraction..”
by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine]
“..it comes as no surprise that the film is the shaky feature debut..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
