“THE BEST FILM OF 2017!”-Dana Keith, Miami Beach Cinematheque

“CRITIC’S PICK: Utilizing a cast of non-actors—most of whom are tasked with playing versions of themselves, in a story pulled from their lives—Zhao’s film derives its power from the truth that both drives and inspires it, and the result is a WHOLLY UNIQUE SLICE OF LIFE DRAMA”-Kate Erbland, IndieWire
