Definitely not your standard doc, this is something special ... a captivating journey through a landscape of mystery and imagination.

Steel often succeeds in conjuring a contemplative trance, which is especially impressive given the arcane subject matter.

Impressionistic animation illustrates the beauty Boyd created...Megan herself comes off as some kind of fabled creature, never seen, but always admired and respected.

Oregonian

The lazy structure, lack of narrative drive or visual stimulus quickly reveal the reasons that Boyd's life hasn't been tackled cinematically before.

January 16, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

With its lyrical blend of atmospheric Highland footage and expressionist animation, this is much more than a documentary about the dying art of hand-fashioned fishing hooks.

Observer (UK)

Steel uses animation, crispy cinematography and interviews with Boyd's protégés and friends to chart the depths of this one-of-a-kind businesswoman.
