Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A simmering drama powered by fully drawn characters and fine performances.
Fresh: "North Sea Texas" explores emergent sexuality and first love with a refreshing optimism.
Fresh: A soulful, slightly hyperreal comedy ...
Rotten: It's not just that film is underdeveloped - it's that it feels unwilling to develop, preferring to leave its characters and plot points static. The result feels stunted.
The Best Romantic Movie<3
I instantly fell in love with Pim, this movie hooks you in straight from the beginning! i highly highly recommend this to everyone:)
I was impressed with the storytelling. Not the average teenage coming out or falling for the hot jock story. It was well thought out with great depth and substance.
Glad I watched this one!
What a great change from the typical movie. Great acting by the entire cast. The dialogue is in Dutch with English subtitles. Please don't let that deter you from watching this movie; if anything, it kind of enhances the experience. Excellent, I highly recommend.
