The ever-versatile Dana Ivgy (OR, JAFFA, ZERO MOTIVATION) turns in another bravura performance as the developmentally disabled and highly sexualized Gabby in this daring and sensitive drama about her and her older sister who cares for her. Beautifully photographed and directed, with a fine supporting cast; this film touches the heart. 4.6 stars.
This movie is truly amazing. You won't see anything special cinematography-wise, but the content is very powerful. I'm happy they kept it within 90 minutes, because I have to be honest, it is at times hard to watch. Some of the scenes are very confrontational. Watch it though, the acting and script are INTENSE!
