Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Here gritty realism meets a more poetic symbolism to expose Winnie's marginalised status without ever resorting to sentiment, preaching or indeed cliché."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"A harrowing film portrait of a ten-year old Irish Traveller whose life is constricted by poverty and prejudice."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"More documentary than drama even as lyric images whisper past . . . slowly burns itself into the memory."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"It's the complete opposite of Bresson's Mouchette and the Dardennes' Rosetta: a not-so-dense or musky fog that's easily parted and forgotten."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Ogden gets impressive performances from his cast, particularly from Winnie, whose sad-eyed little face will stay with you long after you leave the cinema."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Couldn't get into this one."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
