The film presents a stark choice: seek escape in vengeance and blame, or gamble on the freedom gained by embracing a new world, however scarred it may be. Full Review
Farran Smith Nehme
New York Post
Somehow, mostly through the impassioned performances of its young actors, the film finds its footing in the third act, as the narration goes quiet and tragedy unfolds with precision, even elegance. Full Review
Glenn Heath Jr.
Slant Magazine
The film grows increasingly tiresome the more it flirts with melodrama, unraveling themes of jealousy, regret, and ambition in broad strokes. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
This crisp, involving South African drama comes at you in waves, changing course and tone expertly. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
A cast of young actors is uniformly strong, as is Lance Gewer's photography. Full Review
