    "Bottom line: Conor McPherson delivers a beautiful, even believable ghost drama that enraptures on many levels." Doris Tourmakine
    The Hollywood Reporter

    "A film of such seductive grace, humour and startling side trips into buttock-clenching ghastliness that audiences won't know what to make of it." John Anderson
    Variety
