"I left the Baxter with an immense respect for Phillip Dikotla for the skill with which he pulled off the retelling of a story that left raw wounds in the South African psyche...Yes, the story is searingly painful, but Dikotla does it an immense justice by bringing it back to life in this breathtakingly good performance." Marilu Snyders, What's On in Cape Town
