"Alice Trueman’s writing and directing deserves endless praise. Being able to capture so much raw emotion about the changes in friendship and the absurdity surrounding friendship and birth with so little in the way of dialogue is something for which Trueman should be admired. The way she explores ordinary life through a lens of absurdity is refreshing and unique.

Her work feels like a beautiful mixture of art cinema and sketch comedy, which is a wonderful combination"
