Notes about I Shout Love


Quote about I Shout Love

"[Sarah] Polley's film is a brave and mature depiction of the histrionics of emotional desperation. It also reveals, in surprising ways, how the fear of loneliness can spawn, in our technological age, the most peculiar interpersonal rituals of remembrance"
