    had high hopes going into this film and it delivered on every level. each scene carries a heartbreaking sense of melancholy and a glimmer of hope at the same time. the framing doesn’t shy away from brutal experiences, but helps brings viewers closer into the story. tied in with a beautiful score and wonderful performances, it just may be the best of this year’s festival.
