      Tara Brady Irish Times The provincial life, told in delicate movements in a script by Collins and Eamon Little, asks big questions about the nature of happiness. A half-finished garden structure is emblematic of a larger temporal standstill. Rated: 5/5 Apr 26, 2024 Full Review Jonathan Romney Financial Times With a sound design steeped in birdsong, and a spare piano score by Irene and Linda Buckley, here’s a film that unwraps its mysteries slowly, revealing under its quiet surface the human condition writ delicate but deep. Apr 25, 2024 Full Review Phil Hoad Guardian Despite its somewhat diffuse centre, Collins’ film still has a straightforward poignancy, with subtle and dignified performances across the board. Rated: 3/5 Apr 22, 2024 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall This sometimes feels a bit overwritten, but the film is packed with lovely insight. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 30, 2024 Full Review Tom Shone Sunday Times (UK) There’s not much more to the film than that: the passing of the seasons, a death, a marriage, all sewn together with excerpts of Joe’s writing... But the film casts a drowsy spell, like a summer meadow you cannot quite bring yourself to leave. Rated: 3/5 Apr 29, 2024 Full Review Paul Whitington Irish Independent Pat Collins has made many fine films down the years, and surpasses himself with this elegiac adaptation of John McGahern’s final novel. Rated: 5/5 Apr 26, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
