  • [A] rich, poignant and finely observed musical-drama.

  • This surprisingly fun musical examines the effects of nationalism on a tender soul, and the bond of brotherhood among misfits.

  • Olwagen's third feature is a winning combination of thoughtfulness and exuberance that could translate into international theatrical play beyond its fest run.

    July 23, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Every once in a while comes a film that is filled with so much joy, human connection, and emotional turmoil, you know that as long as it sticks the landing, it is a masterpiece.

    October 22, 2019 | Full Review…
  • What's fantastic, though, is that [it] juxtaposes this inner turmoil with the greater problems facing South Africa in the 80s.

    July 15, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a provocative, involving journey to self-acceptance.
