Reviews:
"Another in a string of impressive turns by the young actor and one of the best things Roberts has ever done, the film is aware of the weight of its subject but loath to behave like an 'important' film -- focusing instead on the specificity of one sick young man..." - 09/08/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"[T]he entire film is that rarest of gifts for its cast, providing virtually every character with a chance to play not only the present moment, but the complicated history they’ve established with Ben in the past, as well as whatever chance they see in the troubled young man’s future." - 09/08/2018 Variety


"[I]t’s very much Roberts’s movie....What is so moving and effective about Roberts’s work here is her shrewd subversion of her long-established persona." - 12/05/2018 New York Times


"[T]he performances remain uniformly strong and hold the story together..." - 12/07/2018 RogerEbert.com
