fran hoepfner’s review published on Letterboxd:
naturalist tendercore perfection. the Magaro performance is not just sensitive but absorbing—here is a character who feels the texture of the world with such fullness, who in a moment of stillness seeks out wildflowers. Orion Lee is equal parts shrewd and tender. we know from the onset the price he will pay for a friend. the titular cow—don’t get me started. it’s tough to think of a movie that will stick with me more this year. my heart is so heavy!
