"Matthew Petock's first feature shows him to be a director of depth, sensitivity and assurance. He captures the quiet emotions and heartbreak of his characters with profound respect for the dignity of the everyday struggles in life and what it means to be a family. A Little Closer is a hauntingly beautiful film and a remarkable debut."
"Petock and his flawless cast get everything right."
"A remarkably assured first feature for a director barely out of film school, Petock's debut rips a page out of Raymond Carver's stories."
"A stunning, note-perfect family drama... A Little Closer announces Petock and his gifted cast as dynamic new voices on the indie film scene."
-Scott Foundas, Film Society of Lincoln Center
