“The screenwriter, Carlos Treviño, crafts frank dialogue and the director, Kyle Henry, films the scenes with an eye for the intimate, dividend-paying gesture.” —Critic’s Pick, The New York Times  

“A compelling drama about relationships in crisis.” —Village Voice  

“Shines with authenticity...Feels like real life, for better or for worse.” —Los Angeles Times  

“Brimming with universal truths about the long-hidden but nevertheless permanent bruises of family tragedies, the changing and sometimes numbing nature of even a truly loving long-term relationship and the slow death of knowing one’s dreams are almost certainly defunct.” —Chicago Sun-Times
