Impressive Quiet Debut Film
3 November 2019 | by zooey-sophiaSee all my reviews

The directorial debut of Hannah Pearl Utt is sincere and enjoyable. While there are some issues with pacing and consistency in mood, I found each story in the film to be interesting and important. The subtle and thoughtful acting and storytelling won't be for everyone but this is a quiet and thoughtful film that deserves consideration. I look forward to future films from the young director!
