"There’s raw power in Chomko’s writing, but so much scrupulousness and craft that you feel safe when the time comes to weep"
David Edelstein - NEW YORK MAGAZINE (VULTURE)

"An excellent cast (including Michael Shannon and Hillary Swank) hit the right notes in an evenly wrought family drama that rings true"
Brad Wheeler - THE GLOBE AND MAIL (TORONTO)

"Chomko mitigates a fairly heavy narrative agenda with a great deal of humor, sometimes threatening to make things a little too seriocomic, but never quite crossing the line into pat dramedy."
Dennis Harvey - VARIETY
