"The combination of the magnetic presence of Emilie Piponnier in the title role, and a svelte, unadorned screenplay makes for a watchable drama with real arthouse breakout potential."

"Mackerras displays a marvelous ability to depict humanity at its most raw with poignance and compassion, creating a story that's as moving as it is empowering."
