TWO LOVERS AND A BEAR
Beautiful and thoroughly unpredictable; you never know where Nguyen is going with this story, including the chilling, sci-fi/horror direction he heads in toward the film's climax. Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com
Raw, heartfelt, well-acted and exhilarating. A refreshingly unpredictable, imaginative, and un-Hollywood film that has just the right balance of truth and spectacle. Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
There's a surreal quality to Two Lovers and a Bear that gets underlined by the appearance of the Ursus maritimus of the title; DeHaan has called the movie an adult fairy tale, and that's an apt description. Liz Braun, Toronto Sun
Set in a small town near the North Pole where roads lead to nowhere, the story follows Roman (DeHaan) and Lucy (Maslany), two burning souls who come together to make a leap for life and inner peace.
