Time Out

Unfortunately, director Virginia Gilbert doesn't trust us to handle the chill winds and opts for something that has no temperature at all.

As dull as a dreary daydream.

Irish Times

The dialogue and situations simply never feel authentic. The younger characters are poorly developed and hollow.

Rutherford does lovely things with the Provenšal light, but Fox is too much of a cipher to care about.

Adroit performances abound in this ex-pat tale. Archipelago DP Ed Rutherford helps add to the Joanna Hogg-y feel, but this lacks the disquieting insights of Hogg's work.

Gilbert's full length debut isn't a complete shambles but where passion and tumult should exist, there is only a misguided intent to be found.

Little White Lies

A mood piece on socially inappropriate lust with moments of real drama.
