Editorial Reviews

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
As dark and satisfyingly complete as any concoction dreamed up by the Brothers Grimm.
North Arkansas Times
[Butterfield] does in ninety minutes what it would take many writers a lifetime to do�peel back the layers of unique individuals to show you how they feel and make you understand why they feel that way, even if their views conflict stridently with your own...You may very well find yourself sitting in your car afterward, wondering if you would have seen the ending coming if you had just concentrated a little more. Kind of like when you saw M. Night Shyamalan's for the first time.
