“Masterfully engrosses and disturbs in equal measure in its portrayal of a soul destroyed during the pursuit of freedom.” – Matthew Pejkovic, Matt’s Movie Reviews
“Pugh is a wrecking crew, communicating pure malevolence with a simple glance, but always keeping her composure. She may be evil, but she’s first and foremost a lady.” – Adam Graham, Detroit News
