Jonathan Ley’s review:
This film goes seriously off the boil in the latter stages and there are too many landscape shots and passage of time sequences in lieu of real cinematic ambition BUT, when it's good it's really, really good. Lynn Shelton excels at capturing genuine human behaviour and I wish she would just forget all the 'movie' stuff, accept that her films are visually ugly and concentrate on those surprising, dynamic, authentic moments of unscripted interaction. For instance, the scene in which Emily Blunt's character climbs into the bed of Rosmarie Dewitt's for a chat is the most real and engaging I've seen so far this year. And god bless Mark Duplass' pudgy, dough ball, muppet face.
