  • It's Jarvis whose potential star power leaps out at you.

  • The direction, by the novice Nick Rowland, is assured. You've seen it before. But not like this.

  • Lots of little worthwhile elements, mainly performances from Cosmo Jarvis and Niamh Algar.

    March 12, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Keoghan and Algar are excellent, Jarvis a sad-eyed revelation.

    March 11, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • If the film doesn't quite have the sharpness of John Michael McDonagh's best work in similar terrain, it's a worthy companion piece, as dangerous and soppy-drunk as an old pub brawler.

    Top Critic
  • Perhaps the ending of the film is a little predicable, but a talented and well-directed cast keep this movie motoring along, and Jarvis is a fierce screen presence.
