Alexandr Ogden’s review published on Letterboxd:
a surprisingly sober look at the lives of foster children. (something i love). and stop animation is admittedly something i’m a sucker for. the production looks great, but at at trim hour run time, there’s very little to buff out this lean movie. thus, its forced to hit at its marks and beats quickly, and if it falters, that’s it, the movie is done. thankfully it’s very charming and honest about children like this, and offers up a healthy dose of melancholic reality that can so often be undercut by childhood simplistic and their ability to find joy and friendship.
