      Audience Member Barry, the things i do for you Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie was very good. The cinematography was great. The story was very deep and moving. Barry is a wonderful actor. I wish it was more available to watch. Definitely would recommend. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member this movie's starting was good...there is the homeless boy near her shop..and she does whatever she could to help him and even she offers him to at her place. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Ok, so I don't think this movie is for everyone. You will probably relate to this movie very well if you've gone through divorce, lost a child due to parental alienation or an untimely death or you've been in a relationship with someone who is mentally ill...

      Guy Lodge Variety As delicately drawn by Daly and co-writer Glenn Montgomery, the nervous, mutually tip-toed bond that reveals itself between Margaret and Joe runs counter to the luridly melodramatic lines threatened by the premise. Apr 11, 2016 Full Review Justin Lowe Hollywood Reporter Daly has crafted a carefully calibrated portrait of emotional loss in its various manifestations. Apr 11, 2016 Full Review David Jenkins Little White Lies Griffiths is good and she does what she needs to do, though the film never for a moment feels emotionally or psychologically credible. Rated: 2/5 Mar 31, 2016 Full Review Alan Corr RTÉ (Ireland) The story is ponderous, the scenes of violence that shatter the downbeat mood are largely unconvincing, and the film's detached questioning of human behaviour fails to engage emotionally as the film wanders to an unsatisfactory end. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 19, 2016 Full Review Allan Hunter Screen International Sensitively judged, totally committed performances from Rachel Griffiths and Barry Keoghan carry a tale that edges towards Greek tragedy in its treatment of the fragile, twisted bond between mothers and sons. Apr 11, 2016 Full Review Hilary A White Sunday Independent (Ireland) The two leads interlock seamlessly and make for a uniquely unnerving 'odd couple' in a film that is all the more spellbinding for the distance it keeps from us. Rated: 4/5 Apr 11, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
