Reviews

Total Film

Neil Smith

Its simplicity is both effective and deceptive–a testament to the script’s intelligence and to the actors’ beguiling (if slightly histrionic) performances.

Jason Solomons

A woozy, summer of love film.

The Guardian

Peter Bradshaw

It looks tremendous. Despite the film's sometimes overcooked feel, it has watchability and self-possession and this is down to the performances of its two leads.

Time Out

Dave Calhoun

Director and co-writer Frances Lea hopes to recreate the up-close emotional immediacy of an Andrea Arnold film, but this is a less sure, shakier effort, with some wobbly performances and a more awkward script.

The Times

Kate Muir

An uneven, mysterious, and occasionally raunchy tale.

Edward Porter

A rich ambience can’t redeem the overcooked drama of the sisters’ conflict. I sympathised with one of the other pickers when he said: “If you two carry on being weird, I’m outta here.”

Tennessee Williams might struggle with the idea of inspiring this project.
