"[Mr. Dolan] perfectly evokes the violating effect of a stranger's scrutiny and the imponderable depths of a lover's gaze."
- Jeannette Catsoulis (NY Times)

"Without belittling the challenges and prejudices Laurence faces, Dolan places her story into larger contexts, posing questions about conformity, heartbreak, love and self-fulfillment."
- Thomas Hachard (NPR)

A piercing movie that made me recollect several periods in my life through the 1970's, 80's, 90's and into the 21st century in New York, New York where I was born and lived my entire life.

On identity? On NYC streets the libido doth ran rampant: arm up and protect thyself!
