Top Critic

The film is a bit stagey sometimes, but ambitious and insightful. Tovey is excellent as he shows someone progressing from innocence to fear and then to loneliness.

December 8, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Intense and delicately nuanced.

Tovey holds the film together with a superbly transparent, brittle performance.
