“The earnest film’s straightforwardness and down-to-earth characters — especially the lead performance by Maggie Baird — have a gentle appeal…” – The Hollywood Reporter
“The film’s two leads, Maggie Baird and Finneas O’Connell, are real life mother and son and that truth infuses the film with a heartfelt intimacy and comfort that will make you laugh and cry along the way.”
“D’Agnenica has a tremendous visual eye and frame after frame of Life Inside Out draws you in and refuses to let you go. D’Agnenica is aided in this endeavor by the top notch lensing of Guido Frenzel, who clearly understands that this is a character-driven film and keeps his lens framed beautifully on the relationships between these characters.” – The Independent Critic
