Performers, Cast and Crew:
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2007
"Sarah Polley's directorial feature debut is as considered and mature as her performances in films such as THE SWEET HEREAFTER, THE WEIGHT OF WATER and THE CLAIM....An intensely personal drama..."
New York Times - 05/04/2007
"[R]efreshingly direct....The film is by turns sharp and somber, alive to the lacerations of ordinary experience and quietly attentive to grand absurdities and small instances of grace."
