50% Emoticon ;) (2014) " Livia De Paolis's too cutely titled debut feature wears its themes a little too baldly on its sleeve, but this modest effort about a non-nuclear family dealing with various interpersonal crises boasts some genuinely effective, understated moments." — Hollywood Reporter

Posted Feb 12, 2014

Posted Nov 21, 2013

Posted Nov 20, 2013
