Given the film’s privileging of mood over matter, incomplete character development, and sometimes implausible situations, not every viewer will buy in.

The narrative's delicate slowburn ultimately makes for a deeply satisfying journey.

I was captivated by the moment by moment reality of the characters and the actor's authentic portrayal of ordinary people in crisis. It is not a fast paced action packed thriller don't be expecting rapid delivery of glib one liners this is paced for careful digestion of small mindful moments... gorgeous cinematography too!
