"A tender story of aging, carnival-style." —The Village Voice

"Director Tham Nguyen Thi achieves an impressive degree of intimacy with her subjects, many of them queer or transgender, as they drink, bicker, and explain how much trouble LGBT people have... This is a lively film but also a sad one." —Chicago Reader
