Awards and reviews

“Alive with the magic of pictures and the mysteries of silence, this is an uncommonly grownup film about children, communication, connection and memory.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“There’s hardly a moment here that isn’t gorgeously framed, and Haynes seems to take particular pleasure in meticulously re-creating the Manhattan street scenes of two such distinctive decades.” – Laura Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
