Kids say (1 ):

An honest, gritty insight into love and romance, this movie exposes the joys and pitfalls of relationships. The dialogue-driven narrative is so natural it could have been -- and probably was at least partly -- improvised. Intimate, sensual, and perceptive, Pink Wall touches on mental health, self-esteem issues, gender politics, and the often unrealistic expectations humans have of romantic love. Written and directed by Tom Cullen -- himself an actor, having been a regular in Downton Abbey -- this study in human interaction is at times compelling, at times annoying.

The two lead characters -- beautifully acted by Maslaney and Transparent's Duplass -- veer from charming and funny, and interesting and cool, to nightmarish and needy, and aggressive. As a viewer you feel the same love-hate relationship for them as they do for one another. Emotions run high throughout, not least during an anxiety-inducing dinner party that is basically just a series of arguments and offensive put-downs. Like the whole movie, it's powerful stuff -- and certainly thought-provoking -- but ultimately there's just not enough joy to balance out the angst.
