    David RooneyThe Hollywood Reporter

    There are simply too many characters jostling for attention and too many competing plot strands in a not-quite-seamless marriage of hard-edged social realism with a lyrical novelistic overlay. That said, the film is rich in poignant moments and negotiates its frequent shifts from violence to gentleness to sorrow with sensitivity. show more

    It's the rare coming-of-age narrative that manages to respect the tricky ambiguities of shifting perceptions. show more
