  • 5 stars "Original and quite clever for a small Canadian film. Good storytelling, well shot, and much more of a character piece than I expected. Great performances too. Danny and the little girl were both excellent."
  • 1 star "oh just awful, simply awful."
  • 5 stars "maybe glover's best role. young canadian actress, natasha calis, is heading on an exciting path as she is making it clear that a lead role is on the horizon."
