Consensus: Band Aid tells a solidly affecting story of a relationship on the rocks -- and marks star Zoe Lister-Jones, who also wrote and directed, as a tremendous triple threat worth watching.

Brent McKnight
Seattle Times

Full of sarcastic humor, earnest emotion and a phenomenal performance from writer/director/producer/star Zoe Lister-Jones, it hinges on the central relationship. But even with deep-rooted problems, this is a couple worth rooting for.

Band Aid works well as an indie film, short and sharp with redeeming attributes.

In her new film, Band Aid, Zoe Lister-Jones lays it all on the line and wins. Sally Potter: eat your heart out.

As a performer, Lister-Jones acquits herself well on both the comedic and melodramatic fronts. And the scruffily charming Pally comes across as a hybrid of Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd.

I wouldn't call "Band Aid" profound, but it's wiser and deeper than the average pop song, if not by much.

Daily Film Fix

In "Band Aid," writer/director/star Zoe Lister-Jones has a good handle on the rhythms that gird a flagging relationship. And this means her cathartic, comedic Sundance hit will also hit very close to home.
