"Could well be this year’s indie sleeper, with awards potential for its ensemble cast."
- Damon Wise, Deadline

“Paying homage, in part, to old-school ’70s buddy films, García’s nicely calibrated, life-mirroring tragicomic tapestry of a script and unhurried direction allow the performances plenty of breathing room.”- Michael Rechtshaffe, The Hollywood Reporter 

Stay after the AppleTV+ film for a short Q&A with writer/director Rodrigo García and producer Julie Lynn.
