so beautifully captures the details of its time and place and its characters' lives that it's difficult to resist being drawn in.

A meditative film that lyrically affirms the small acts of love, courage, and kindness that knit a family together in the face of hardship and change.

[Director] O'Connor exercises both admirable restraint and disciplined editing. The camera's eye brings us painterly beauty in the harsh Irish landscape.
