  • [A] crafty debut feature.

  • A really well-acted character study.

    September 20, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's a small story, but the points it makes about the corrosion wrought by class distinctions and the prejudices attached to them give it a dimension that will resonate wherever you happen to live.

    May 23, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Sorry, no backstory, no flashbacks. Just Brun's masterful performance as a mask that is starting to crack.

    March 29, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • But if some questions remain unanswered, Brun's performance provides much of the clarity we need.

    March 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • By the end of the film, the audience feels like it knows his heroine at almost precisely the same time she has gotten to know herself. It's a minor kind of magic.
