Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: While Swale’s construction leans towards the obvious and her third act tragedy rather callously sets the stage for her happy ending, her ingenious use of the Fata Morgana phenomenon shakes her protagonist out of her self absorption and lifts her tale into the realm of wonder.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Few films this year have left me feeling as good as this one. I felt immersed in this world, its characters, and I was totally in for the ride.
  • [New] | Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: There is an otherworldly quality to this hopeful account of the past.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Gemma Arterton gives one of the year’s best performances here, in a story that tugs on your heartstrings in spite of a few general cliches.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: The result is going to be divisive thanks to an unabashed deluge of sentimentality, but the believability of the circumstances above mere convenience should [earn] acceptance.
