"It's an absorbing, character-driven film that explores female sensuality and longing in all its complexity - and whatever your gender or preferences, its vexing central relationship may well ring a bell.” Deadline Hollywood "This is a strong, assertive, sexy story about and by women that every woman will in some way recognise, and many more men besides.” Screen International
