'It's a small film, with a low budget and a modest cast, but huge in scope, and unafraid to ask big questions about what it is to be human.’ ★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times

‘In someone else's hands, it could have been an exercise in chest-beating macho sentiment. But in Mortensen's, it has a sad, surprising delicacy.’ ★★★★ Tim Robey, The Telegraph
