What we think

A remarkable lead turn make this bullying drama worth seeing, even as it gets caught awkwardly between social realism and allegory.

What others think

At just 72 minutes, this is a brief, intense feature: it’s possible that Wandel envisaged it as even shorter than it actually is.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
A strong display of Wandel and her actors’ talent but keen to see something different next time.
Caitlin Quinlan Little White Lies
Towards the end, you realise there’s been no score whatsoever. It doesn’t need such enhancement or manipulation. The ambient sound of the playground is terrifying enough.
