    I am truly in awe with this film, such a well-crafted debut of the director, Kim Bora. I'm gonna keep her name in mind. Her story is so confident in its themes, it moves quietly but with strength. Easily one the best I've watched so far this year.

    I’ve been saying for a while that it’s time we have more movies with lesbian romances there are not only about the romance, and this is an example of what I mean. The film was more mature than I thought it would be based on the synopsis – it’s quiet and honest rather than overly dramatic. It might bother some people that the plot doesn’t go very deep into the debate it presents, but I didn’t mind that. Kate Mara and Ellen Page are great together, their scenes are really sweet to watch, good casting and even better chemistry.

    - é a minha tese
    - ah, e sobre o que é a sua tese, laurinha?

    - deve ser interessante. mas eu nunca te vi rindo, laurinha. como é que você foi escrever um livro sobre isso?
    - porque eu sou uma estudiosa, lúcia, eu não sou uma palhaça
