✨ Felisha ✨’s review published on Letterboxd:
I was completely unprepared for how emotional this movie made me -- how easily it effected me right from the start. This is a beautiful mixture of horror, creature, bittersweet moments, and the awareness of sound!
There were multiple moments when the entire audience fell silent, each of us sucked into the world of this film. For it to have that effect speaks volumes in my book. As a whole this film felt confident, from the acting to direction everything flowed so perfectly together. I hope to see more of Millicent Simmonds in the future!!
While there were moments where I had to suspend my disbelief -- the perfectly raw moments made up for them. I expected this to be good but I wasn't ready for it to be as incredible as it actually is. If you can, you should definitely catch this one in theaters.
