Reviews

Jeannette Catsoulis
New York Times
The movie's insistently playful tone and cheesy fantasy sequences ultimately work against its ambitions, undermining a story that seethes with abuse and sexual obsession.

eye WEEKLY
Young lead Andrew Paterson is so likeable that the film occasionally threatens to be affecting, but a series of strenuously melodramatic developments late in the game kept us detached and unimpressed.
