A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"[Janeane] Garofalo and [Morgan] Spector are particularly good at suggesting ruthless determination under a friendly enough facade. You’d think twice about sharing a vodka with these two."

New York Post

Elisabeth Vincentelli

"A thoughtful, well-written domestic drama with something original to say about immigrant families living by old world values in a new world culture? Pinch me!"


Marilyn Stasio

"The performances are uniformly fine. Ms. Garofalo finds the tangy humor in her role as the domineering Diana without resorting to ethnic caricature."

The New York Times
