Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"... it has something that few modern films do: a realistic insight into the female perspective."
‑ Adam Ross, The Aristocrat
"The tale alternates between whimsy and realism a little too much...but is pleasant, passable viewing."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"Desire, love and madness leads to motherhood in this warts-and-all look at the A to Z of what happens to a woman when she has a baby... there's an inherent feeling of truth about the work and performances, resonating especially with female audiences"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
