Critics Views

“Outside of a few short moments in Ismail Merchant and James Ivory’s “Maurice,” and Ang Lee’s “Brokeback Mountain,” the love and intimacy between two male characters has never truly felt this real or emotionally heart-breaking in a theatrical context. It’s almost revolutionary. It’s cinematic art.” The Playlist

“The chemistry between the men is palpable, but what’s more important, they convey their characters’ complex emotions, expectations and thoughts without necessarily opening their mouths.”  The Hollywood Reporter

“It’s a beautiful, supremely touching performance from Chalamet which gives this surprisingly safe story its moving purity.” Screen International
