It is vibrant... this is a superwoman performance by somebody in a very down to earth situation.

The film is thoroughly convincing, so we're spared seeing the family agonised by some excessively grim plot development. At the same time, we might wonder if a documentary with a similar story wouldn't have more power.

Wrenchingly powerful and heartbreakingly relevant...

A movie that boasts as much emotional warmth as it does savage turmoil

There is a bittersweetness of vision in this movie: an imaginative, compassionate reaching-forth to this young Mother Courage setting out her daily stall of stoical desperation.

Greene is phenomenal

This modest social realist drama builds into a cry from the heart about the nightmare of homelessness.

So much tenderness and beauty wafts up from this heart-breaking situation that you may be rendered immobile once the credits roll.

This is a poignant story that feels intensely personal.

Though never particularly cinematic, the experience is immersive, exhausting and breathtakingly empathetic, with Cathal Watters' intimate cinematography and the tragic soundtrack from Stephen Rennicks adding to the emotion.

Any moment of unbridled joy seems destined to be shattered by an unfortunate turn of events. That being said, the family dynamic is full of love and tenderness, and it is to the film's credit that it is at pains to avoid any accusations of miserabilism.

Rosie may not be very original, but the message of this film is important, and in delivery it is warm, urgent and terribly affecting.
September 10, 2018
A quietly, gradually heartbreaking portrait of regular people coping with a desperate situation...
September 8, 2018
Filmed in long takes with handheld cameras, the movie creates urgency from uncertainty: it's not the kind of movie where people deliver long monologues about bad luck and overwhelmed social services, because no one has the time.
September 8, 2018
A modest, social realist drama, its air of familiarity does not diminish its impact as a heartbreaker.
September 8, 2018
Rosie can be heartbreaking to watch at times but the film captures the reality of what families go through upon losing their homes.
