Far from the first female coming-of-age movie, but it's one of the most vivid.

It is, like weather, what it is, neither good nor bad but something that feels as if it has the weight of the inevitable.

Jeffs' meticulous framing nicely counterpoints all the messy turmoil, and her screenplay flows with the cadences of life.

Jeffs creates a lush atmosphere of desire and approaching chaos, and delivers a bona fide shocker in the last reel.

Ms. Fulford-Wierzbicki is almost spooky in her sulky, calculating Lolita turn.

Freights a young girl's self-destructive eagerness to lose her virginity with so much danger and even horror that it's as if the events were trying to make up for the film's previous lack of drama.

A shimmeringly lovely coming-of-age portrait, shot in artful, watery tones of blue, green and brown.

It has more than a few moments that are insightful enough to be fondly remembered in the endlessly challenging maze of moviegoing.

A master work in miniature, an unsentimental yet not unsympathetic portrait of a family falling apart in slow motion.

This New Zealand coming-of-age movie isn't really about anything. When it's this rich and luscious, who cares?

[Jeff's] gorgeous, fluid compositions, underlined by Neil Finn and Edmund McWilliams's melancholy music, are charged with metaphor, but rarely easy, obvious or self-indulgent.

Some of the visual flourishes are a little too obvious, but restrained and subtle storytelling, and fine performances make this delicate coming-of-age tale a treat.

A coming-of-age tale from New Zealand whose boozy, languid air is balanced by a rich visual clarity and deeply felt performances across the board.

The dialogue is cumbersome, the simpering soundtrack and editing more so.
