Very good. Similar in mood I thought to I've Loved You So Long (2008), but filmed and edited with even more dynamism, attention to tones. I just thought the religious angle was rather un-subtle, the priest nefarious from the get-go. That said, the subtlety of Anna's relationships (with her grandfather and her neighbourhood boyfriend in particular) are handled with a real truthfulness and care.
