“Equal parts coming-of-age story and slow-burn thriller; Quietly absorbing and methodically disquieting. Schloss is excellent.”
– Joe Leydon, VARIETY

“Boasts a major turn from Sophia Mitri Schloss. You simply can’t turn away from her.”
– Kate Erbland, INDIEWIRE

“A provocative drama elevated by its strong performances; an emotionally violent coming-of-age story crafted with vivid detail. Sadie is played brilliantly by Sophia Mitri Schloss.”
– John Fink, THE FILM STAGE

“A startling character study. Bolstered by an unnerving breakout performance by Sophia Mitri Schloss.”
-Ally Johnson, THE PLAYLIST
