‘This beautiful and compassionate film from first-time feature director Colm Bairéad… is a child’s-eye look at our fallen world; already it feels to me like a classic… Kate McCullough’s superb cinematography and Emma Lowney’s production design create a magically beautiful new world for Cáit to feel at once threatened and exalted by: almost every shot is a vividly composed, painterly gem.’—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
The film was nominated for Best International Feature Film at the 95th Academy Awards.
