Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Writer Julia Hart and director Daniel Barber develop the women's relationships at a careful, steady pace, giving them time to bond; this is essential since they must learn to trust and respect each other to survive. – Laura Power, Chicago Reader, Dec 10, 2015

Fresh: Director Daniel Barber has a talent for sussing out the brutality intrinsic in the everyday. – Molly Eichel, Philadelphia Inquirer, Oct 1, 2015
