★★★★★
“The story continues to unfold with great force, with countless dynamics at play - we watch, transfixed as harmony gives way to tension, and the differences in outlook that may have complemented one another in more innocent times, now boil over into feuds and risk dragging up long-buried frictions. […] It would take a very detached individual to see this play and not be moved, and a thoroughly impossible one not to be impressed.”

For '18-22, Attractive, Insecure', 2017.
