Critics say...

"Filmmaker Courtney Hope Therond demonstrates her ability with dialogue, the two women becoming progressively more open about how they’re feeling, the stakes high but never feeling melodramatic. There are many “ideas” of a break up we see on screen, but here, it feels loving, honest and holds a mirror up to anyone who’s lost themselves in another person. It’s also shot in a tiny, tiny bedroom and 4:3, that choice adding to the claustrophobia of their codependence."
