Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The walls may be closing in on these people, but we are constantly aware of the vast environment outside, at once threatening and awe-inspiring.
Fresh: Away from the festival lights ... this slow-burn collection of narratives, with its moody cinematography, original soundtrack and emotionally authentic performances, looks even stronger.

Beautiful scenery, believable characters and situations, but dark and depressing in every way
Saw this film at CIFF last fall, brilliant spectacle and an amazing piece of evidence of Canadian filmmaking. It captures the world of Alberta so naturally and exudes the empty chaos of this place.
