Quote:
"While [Ellen] Page and [Evan Rachel] Wood hardly look like sisters, their commanding, utterly believable performances [in Into the Forest] remove any doubt. Nell and Eva's relationship forms the heart of the film and, along with the fleeting moments of ecstasy they find in things previously taken for granted—eating a piece of chocolate, watching home movies—their bond provides something of genuine beauty in a progressively bleak world."
