Their emotions find expression not only in their work — a play Mont is writing, the labor Jimmie pours into his old home — but also in the filmmaking, in the intense hues of Adam Newport-Berra’s cinematography and the churning, majestic strains of Emile Mosseri’s score. – Los Angeles Times

LA Weekly Pick of the Week: “Bold compositions and a soaring soundtrack meet in this piece of poetic realism that should quickly become a cult favorite.” – Nathaniel Bell, LA Weekly
