Quotes from Reviews

Stand out performances come from Jennie Stoller and Claire Foy, playing two characters each, covering meek and severe extremes.
Huffington Post

A real stand-out performance was by that of Claire Foy who plays “young woman holding a flower” in the first scene and “young woman with a cigarette” in the second. Her transformation and mannerisms perfectly fit each character and lead the performance, guiding the audience through the increasingly similar narrative of the scenes.
