Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This risky, rewarding drama blends emotional naturalism with a formal style in the story of its three titular characters -- a young Jamaican-Canadian mother with sickle-cell anemia, an ex-boxer looking for a human connection and a 12-year-old boy."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"The film is carried completely by the performances; the nurse and the fighter exchange few words, for example, but their mutual attraction is conveyed perfectly by the actors."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"Strong performances and striking cinematography help this first film by Toronto's Charles Officer move with more grace than its heavy-going storyline would have normally allowed."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"A well intentioned but pervasively uneven piece of work..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
