★★★★★ – Telegraph
Set in 1970s California, Paul Thomas Anderson’s (Punch-Drunk Love) wonderful coming-of-age story focuses on high school student and child actor Gary Valentine (Hoffman, son of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) and his relationship with twentysomething Alana Kane (Haim).
Featuring star-making performances from its fresh-faced talent, Anderson beautifully captures the highs and lows of growing up and first love.
