“An emotionally rich, beautifully textured family dramedy that touches on a wealth of interpersonal issues with buoyancy, charm and grace. It's one of the best films so far this year.”
(LOS ANGELES TIMES)

“Humor creeps in from strange sources, including a seller of funeral packages and a march through a Paris graveyard. And while not every motivation is clear, subtext isn't everything in a movie as complex and satisfying as this one.”
(THE NEW YORK TIMES)

“The chemistry between the siblings carries the film; they share a rich banter and subtle physical affection that feels real, built on years of shared intimacy — and this new experience of ignorance.”
(VILLAGE VOICE)
