This small, tough film provides no easy solutions.
A quietly, gradually heartbreaking portrait of regular people coping with a desperate situation...
So much tenderness and beauty wafts up from this heart-breaking situation that you may be rendered immobile once the credits roll.
This is a poignant story that feels intensely personal.
Though never particularly cinematic, the experience is immersive, exhausting and breathtakingly empathetic, with Cathal Watters' intimate cinematography and the tragic soundtrack from Stephen Rennicks adding to the emotion.
The acting across the board is flawless, lending an unshakable feeling of realism to the film.
Any moment of unbridled joy seems destined to be shattered by an unfortunate turn of events. That being said, the family dynamic is full of love and tenderness, and it is to the film's credit that it is at pains to avoid any accusations of miserabilism.
Rosie may not be very original, but the message of this film is important, and in delivery it is warm, urgent and terribly affecting.
Filmed in long takes with handheld cameras, the movie creates urgency from uncertainty: it's not the kind of movie where people deliver long monologues about bad luck and overwhelmed social services, because no one has the time.
A modest, social realist drama, its air of familiarity does not diminish its impact as a heartbreaker.
Rosie can be heartbreaking to watch at times but the film captures the reality of what families go through upon losing their homes.
