“Nothing less than a masterpiece, a powerhouse of performance, style and subtext. It is witchy and wordy and bracingly feminist; it is disorienting and strangely erotic and unpredictable.” – Katie Walsh, The Tribune News Service
“Moss delivers a ferocious star turn in a film that functions primarily as a showcase for her tough, uncompromising talents.” – Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
