All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

Durkin's script gives Coon and Law two of the best characters of their careers and both actors completely deliver.

February 1, 2020 | Full Review…

The writer-director Sean Durkin brings a brooding tension to his story, elevated by the complexity of his characters.

January 31, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Although Law and Coon have great chemistry, and the film does well to touch on how isolation manifests in men, women and children alike, the various narrative strands never quite connect...

Law and Coon have thrown themselves into this material with rich, measured turns that come alive in Durkin's elegant frames.
