  • This is a good-looking film with some nice stylistic touches and even a nod to Turturro's legendary Jesus Quintana character from The Big Lebowski. But it never addresses some real behavioral problems...

  • At every moment, I was holding my breath and waiting for this film to become treacle, just absolute cotton candy. To the credit of director Martin Krejcí and writer Olivia Dufault: they take some time choices. They don't sugarcoat everything.

  • I appreciated that it didn't have easy answers... It's worth telling and well-told.

  • Krejcí and Dufault avoid didacticism thanks to the sheer gusto they bring to a wide range of settings, from the cramped interiors of an RV to a lighthouse party lit by fireworks late at night.

  • The film becomes something precious, valuable, and rare.

    October 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's the Martell show... and the major talent finds a lot of nuance in his angsty rebellion even when wearing a ton of makeup.
