  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: In her first leading role, Swinton Byrne, her only prior experience playing her mother’s daughter in “I Am Love,” is a revelation, her passion outweighing any lack of confidence, her naïveté endearing, her need to believe in her lover heartbreakingly relatable.
  • Courtney Howard @ AwardsCircuit.com
    • Excerpt: Hogg’s slow-burning, coming-of-age drama feels like a lived-in experience – one that’s simultaneously heartbreaking and heartening.

    • Excerpt: We shake our heads at what Julie does, but it’s not because her actions are unbelievable. It’s precisely because we’ve made those same mistakes that she demands our empathy.

    • Excerpt: I wasn’t dazzled as much as disappointed that it told us so little about Hogg’s inner feelings in a film that was so personal.
