      Alejandro E Como filme independiente, aborda de manera correcta un tema sensible como lo es la confusión de género y la aceptación del mismo sin señalamientos morales. Es lo mejor que se podría decir a su favor. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/28/23 Full Review Amanda c Loved it. Touched on a lot of different elements. Mental and physical. Best to everyone slainte Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/12/23 Full Review Ric O It has a lot of heart and delivers the right message but it tries too hard during the third act. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/04/23 Full Review isla s I thought this was quite a well made, somewhat low key film about a serious theme, transitioning youngsters. The theme was handled sensitively, I felt. The cast do well and there's some thought provoking moments, definitely. Its a good film that I'd recommend, yes. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Butler C Great scenery, so 2 stars for that. Unfortunately, great scenery does not a good movie, make. If you're looking for a cure for insomnia, look no further... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/21/22 Full Review cheryl r A beautiful movie, which has obviously been review bombed bc of the subject matter. The story is short and sweet, but still manages to deliver intense and emotional moments. The acting is really good across the board, but Zahn really stands out and gives what is probably his best performance. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Donald Clarke Irish Times Gets by on goodwill and a passion for compromised Americana. Only a lowdown dirty heel would cuss it out. Rated: 3/5 May 15, 2021 Full Review Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review Low-key in all the ways it needed to be. But I laughed, I cried and I really enjoyed it. May 10, 2021 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) Comic actors Steve Zahn and Jillian Bell are uncharacteristically earnest in this achingly well-intentioned but thuddingly heavy-handed family drama. Rated: 2/5 May 9, 2021 Full Review Michael Cuby them. Cowboys can be heartbreaking, but it also feels fitting for the times. Sep 27, 2022 Full Review Mitchell Beaupre Awards Radar This is, above all else, a character piece, and Kerrigan demonstrates a real knack for creating believable, full-bodied human beings, portrayed by an ensemble of fantastic actors. Rated: 3/4 Sep 22, 2022 Full Review Dan Bayer Next Best Picture The film is made with such obvious love that it's hard to feel churlish, and it ends with Kerrigan beautifully threading a tricky needle: The hard part of Joe's life is far from over, but this experience has made him stronger.
