Movie Reviews

“[Anderson] pieced together something that feels more concrete, more achingly, tangibly real, than just about any American movie this year.” Justin Chang: Los Angeles Times 

“Creating a character whose warmth and humanity are tempered by hilariously deadpan humor and prickly detachment, Haim makes one of the most exciting screen debuts in recent memory.” David Rooney: The Hollywood Reporter 

“Don’t mistake [it] for a minor work from a major director, clearly the best of his generation (…) His portrait of youth alive to the pinwheeling joy of possibility is irresistible and one of the very best movies of the year” Peter Travers: ABC News
