“Quite simply, a genuine work of art by a genuinely empathetic artist, and one of the single most moving, heartfelt, and heartbreaking movies from any country in the last decade. Ireland’s nominee for Best International Feature should, in a just world, be up for Best Picture. Do yourself a favor and see it as soon as you can.”– David Fear, ROLLING STONE
