Anne Fontaine's study of two still very attractive women trying to fight back against the incoming tide of time is an incredibly provocative piece of work, featuring a brave and vulnerable performance by Naomi Watts and a career-high acting masterclass from Robin Wright.

Lil and Roz have been best friends since they were little girls. Now grown, but still living next door to each other… Everything seems perfect in their lives - that is, until things suddenly unravel into a crisscrossing, oedipal saga full of intense emotions and unexpected sexual and melodramatic developments.
- Alex Koehne, Twitch Film
