Moverman and cinematographer Bobby Bukowski establish a visual approach that is more than just documentary-like, as the widescreen images lean toward the bold and carefully composed.

Moverman...This is the best movie he's made, and the least beholden to commercial filmmaking norms. There are times when it gets close to turning into an American version of the sorts of stark yet tender dramas made by the Dardenne brothers in Belgium.
