After the arrival of her son Dragos, everything seems to have fallen perfectly into place.

  • An engaging and harrowingly topical drama.

  • "Lemonade" remains effective and agitating precisely where it needs to be, while the subtleties of Manovici's performance, clouding her ingenue-like appearance with flashes of hard-lived savvy, keep the drama on edge.

  • It's a well-acted, if too polished, exercise tinged with sadness and hope alike. Still, the valid ideas had a considerable margin for improvement.
