    I just had the chance to see Yang MingMing's wonderfully nuanced exploration of mother daughter dynamics. This feature debut won the Firebird Award at Hong Kong International Film Festival 2018. I greatly appreciated her short film Female Directors, which I saw quite a while ago. Can't wait to see what Yang MingMing makes next.

    Watched this film tonight. It's up for a John Cassavetes Award (best feature made for under $500,000) at Independent Spirit Awards this year. That's not one of the categories I get to vote on, but I am looking to see how many of the nominated films I can watch before awards night. It's out on disc. I borrowed it from the library.

    SO glad I did. It's a gem of a film. Subtle. Beautifully acted. Lovely script. Thanks for making this film.
