Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Slow, Quirky, Absorbing

Cliched, Indulgent, Insipid, Slow, Ambitious

See it if dystopian survival stories appeal. Three desperately hungry women live together in a penthouse each approaching her personal limit.

Slow, Macabre, Well-written, Repetitive, 1/3-well-acted

See it if You appreciate competent writing over uneven acting; coherent dystopian vision, disturbingly plausible; well-staged given limited resources

Don't see it if You find graphic description of abject hunger, cannibalistic urges unpalatable; dinner after hard; contrived lesbian scenes lacked chemistry

Fun, Light, Fluffy, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if you want a bit of light, fun theater. And you enjoy the apocalyptic craze sweeping the nation.

Slow, Thought-provoking, Intense, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if you like slow moving shows about people's behavior under very stressful conditions.

Don't see it if you are looking for an upbeat entertaining performance.
