"Simmonds is an excellent performer: bold, confident and forthright, holding her own opposite the alpha-emoting presence of Murphy. [...] What a pleasure to see a big, brash picture like this on the big screen."
★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"This is a film that is undoubtedly more effective in the dark, with a top-notch sound system and a huge screen, than it would be on a laptop or a television.

★★★★ Nicholas Barber, BBC Culture
