Debra Granik's bleak little film is as tough, unflinching and fascinating as the characters who eke out a life amid its cold, gray hills.Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
It's a film full of mounting tensions and an atmosphere of dread and incipient terror that will make you uncomfortably familiar with the edge of your seat, which is where you'll mostly watch it from.Allan Jones, Uncut Magazine [UK]
Lawrence is outstanding as the young girl stepping up to do whatever's necessary to save her family, not allowing herself the luxury of even the smallest smile to deter her from the job at handKimberly Gadette, Indie Movies Online
