    While Kim is unable to keep us riveted on her near-silent performance, the script and direction have a gentle sensitivity. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    A small slice of a suspended life, intimate and filled with the mundane details most people forget when the waiting is over and their real lives begin. show more

    Eric Campos Film Threat

    The camera lingers on the characters' minimal, but expressive actions, allowing the viewer to soak in their emotions rather than having them related to us through dialogue. In doing so, In Between Days is more of an experience than your average movie. show more

    Noel Murray The A.V. Club

    The director deserves kudos for setting her movie during such a gray, dreary Toronto winter. It couldn't have been easy to find a climate that so resembles adolescence. show more
