  • [A] minimalist, rule-breaking exercise in head-scratching human behavior.

  • Zellner handles the material delicately, treating her apparent psychosis like an ill-fated by-product of growing up. This strange yet wistful dynamic suggests Harmony Korine adapting Judy Blume.

  • The film is, if nothing else, an interesting meditation on how a child who grows up without guidance might react to a situation that requires judgment.

    Aug 6, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Aguirre is a find-she has none of the precociousness of the typical screen tween-but the movie's magical-realist elements don't jibe with the unstudied naturalism of her performance.

  • Like Days of Heaven on paint fumes, a languid, occasionally hilarious, occasionally poetic coming-of-age story.

  • Spearheaded by phenomenal pint-sized lead Sydney Aguirre, this challenging third feature from the Zellner Brothers retains much of their provocative trademark idiocy but navigates darker waters.
