"This is a mature film in that it asks us to bring a lot of ourselves to it, preferring observation and introspection to melodrama or any big obvious conclusions." ★★★★ Dave Calhoun, Time Out

"Director Ritesh Batra’s camera is particularly adept at capturing the subtle flags that indicate that people know each other a little too well" ★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer
