eye Weekly
Chandler Levack quote iconFilmed in an intriguing, sensual style that looks like a perfume ad, the film’s overwrought drama and almost unbearable sense of camp make it the most interesting failure of the year.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconOverall, this is quite an impressive debut from a man who knows a thing or two about how things should look, but it's Firth's understated, touching and devastating performance that results in one being unable to look away.
