WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

60

Los Angeles Times by Gary Goldstein

Koechlin gives such a remarkably warm, expressive performance (she and Gupta are non-disabled) it’s hard not to be captivated by much of this tender, if choppy film.
70

The Hollywood Reporter by Leslie Felperin

Director Bose handles the material with a light, elegant touch. It helps that the cast, especially the remarkable Koechlin who gives a bravura performance in both physical and emotional terms, can carry it all off.
