Review: (#1) Hand drawn poster designs are a dime a dozen and most of them, this one included, aren’t that interesting. (#2) While the poster definitely evokes a sense of “slice of life,” it doesn’t have a lot of visual flair or enticement to sell the audience sight-unseen.

Trailer Rating: B-

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: Indie dramas that tackle delicate sociopolitical issues have a certain appeal to specialty box office watchers. Combine that with Ken Loach’s familiarity and the trailers general structure and you have a film that should do well in a limited capacity.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
