THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
Clover, [played by Nicole Elizabeth Berger], turns out to be far more formidable than your average teenage girl
Berger is a revelation; she reminded me strongly of Chloë Grace Moretz in Kick Ass and that’s a good thing. She’s both pretty and tough, yet shows vulnerability when she has to.
Clover makes it's Martin Scorsese/Quentin Tarantino moves work.
Clover[...] brings the delightful energy of a mob-comedy that [...] feels like a delightful mash-up of Guy Ritchie, Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese films.
Berger is a complete find as the titular character, as she effectively serves as the counterbalance (and model of common sense) for the often foolish (but well-meaning) siblings.
I especially liked the performance by Nicole Elizabeth Berger as the young teen Clover that finds herself unwittingly on the run from the mob.
You will be laughing hysterically thanks to the charming, comedic timing of the leads Mark Webber, Jon Abrahams, and Nicole Elizabeth Berger.
The Place of No Words
The Place of No Words is genius… a courageous work… unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I ultimately left the film feeling that I had experienced something cinematically-groundbreaking and deeply, emotionally impactful.
...innovative project that smacks you in the feels
personal and moving… lyrical, emotional, and intuitive… there’s an unwavering warmth that makes its story of the family all the more lasting and poignant… a finely tuned, resonant piece of filmmaking.
The Place of No Words is a film that will make viewers think about how to process adult things through the eyes of a child and approach the world with childlike wonder.
Webber’s instincts pay off… The Place of No Words is the kind of beast you’ll instinctively remember even if you try to move on from it.
a powerful, cinematic story… I could sense Cassavetes in the back of the theater, silently applauding.
another form of cinema entirely… This film will tug at your heartstrings as you watch, and will surely sit with you long after you’ve left the theater…
…there is no denying its powerful symbolism of something much deeper.
...the movie’s imaginative energy is undeniable.
