This is an exceptionally good film, by a sensitive and well-informed director leading a fine young actor.
6 November 2015 | by gilhardwick-46440See all my reviews

This film is right out of the box, carried not only by candidly true-to-type female antagonists but by Yonah's continuity and direction, both assisted considerably by Gabriel's fine acting ability.

Gabriel plays Jesse to a tee and Yonah and certainly the camera crew respond, but more than that Gabriel's obvious discretion, wit and intelligence add spontaneous mastery and authenticity to a pubescent role and character-type too often stylised, distorted and dismissed as such in contemporary cinema.

I left primarily hoping to see a great deal more of this very talented young actor, and on short reflection many more movies like this. The world will be a better place for it.
