Charlie Derry’s review:
A very honest film that doesn't give the happy endings you keep expecting. The dialogue in the film is intensely strong, really bringing in some home truths which give the film an emotionally raw quality, making this film what it is. The use of Damien Rice's "The Blower's Daughter" at the beginning and the end of the film, each time as Natalie Portman is walking in slow motion, is beautiful, and it's moments like this that really keep you engaged. The cast is incredible, and each bring something different to the film whilst all playing their parts superbly, allowing the chemistry to flow between their interchangeable couplings. It was Portman, for me, who stood out though, but that's because I found her character relateable whilst everybody else seemed to be out for one another.
