  • 4 stars "I read comments before attending and was a little apprehensive, but enjoyed this a lot. The friction between the lead characters is required to make the story work."
  • 5 stars "Great acting and story line"
  • 4 stars "Super movie! Love Juliette and Clive together! It's not for children, but people who want to learn something about human behaviour. Juliette also created all of her paintings in the film. I'm going to see it again."
