"There's a lot to it ... [it] is very much a commentary on power, and gender and sexuality as vehicles by which society channels that power ... One highlight would be Baccari's portrayal of Betty in 1979. Tasteful, stylish and polite, she is learning to assert her likes and dislikes, embracing life with a newfound curiosity and even joy. It's a fine performance." - +Tampa Bay Times
