  1. There is a wonderful natural quality to Jeong's storytelling that is enhanced by cinematographer Young-hwan Choi's graceful camerawork and by a dynamic, contemporary score from M&F.

    As rich in incidental detail as it is narratively diffuse.
  3. 80
    Jeong's movie is at its best when it forgets about everything but the interactions of its cast, whether they're together or communicating via one of Cat's cleverly orchestrated cell-phone scenes.
  4. 70
    Gentle, low-key first feature.
  5. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    Refreshingly serious look at young women whose relative freedom doesn't mean they're particularly free.
  6. 70
    Captivating coming-of-age story.
  7. As it abruptly crosscuts among the five friends, it fails to lend the characters' individual stories enough dramatic resonance to make us care about them.
