  • A character study of this relationship, casually yet carefully sketched out by Kim in subtle but meaningful gestures and glances. Much is communicated through the eyes, searching for answers in the void of what's not said, but felt.

  • There are glances and nervous hands, longing gazes, and downcast faces needing explanation or consolation. Malone and Keough, perfectly cast and perfectly in sync as people who should be - but probably never will be - lovers, make sadness seem enticing.

  • Kim's latest -- like Carol made on an indie budget -- is split in two exquisite halves.

  • The overall effect is one of a disjointed love story that can never quite find the tune, no matter how skilled its players.
