...impressive for its ability to tell a near-universal modern story entirely through a close-focus view of everyday life.

Director Isold Uggadottir manages to keep the narrative away from melodrama or over-sentimentality. Her direction keeps a careful distance, but is forgiving and empathetic to her struggling characters.

The plot presents a set of circumstances that rely on dangerous tropes to further its narrative, and making it impossible for me to suspend disbelief.

Understated and confidently judged, it becomes a testimony to the old-fashioned virtues of social-realist storytelling rooted in ordinary lives and timely concerns.
