Critics reviews

As much a film about the masks we use to face the world as it is about love (which never really comes), it’s fitting that Cat ends up being tossed from a cab into the pouring rain. Untethered and free is fun to a point, but only in the movies do the girl and the boy come back for a kiss, and rescue the sloppy and matted Cat from the downpour.
