Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A slow-burning but ultimately devastating look at revenge gone awry, with Press conveying a subtle mix of bolshiness and fragility."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Directors Brek Taylor and Elizabeth Mitchell can't quite manage the fantastical imaginings of the two would-be lovers without creating a fey tone that destroys their realism."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"It's good to see Natalie Press - so good in My Summer of Love - back on the screen, but this is a flimsy film."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"The quasi-fairytale atmosphere is adeptly handled, and Kathy Li's cinematography imbues proceedings with a chilly beauty."
‑ Andrew Lowry, Total Film
"An intriguing misfire."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Radio Times
"Stunning to look at and ambitious in its symbolic rendering of the subject."
‑ David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
