'It may be a timely film, but it is its timelessness, as well as its depths of compassion, that qualify it as a great one.’ ★★★★★ Ryan Gilbey, The Guardian

'A cry for compassion that marries the fierce conviction of Boys Don't Cry with the defiant self-expression of a Pedro Almodóvar drama.’ ★★★★ Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
