  • This deeply humanistic, profoundly touching work representing independent cinema at its finest should be seen by far wider audiences. show more

  • What a courageous first feature this is, a film that sidesteps shopworn stereotypes and tells a quiet, firm, deeply humanist story about doing the right thing. It is a film that avoids any message or statement and simply shows us, with infinite sympathy, how the life of a completely original character can help us lead our own. show more

  • An acutely felt, altogether devastating family drama as intimate and affecting as it is sprawling and untamed. show more
