Keepin' it Reel

The Word Is


"The film's real master stroke is the casting of Kelly Wray as Rae, whose ability to weave together vulnerability with super coolness gives us a character we never quite figure out until it's time to figure her out. It's a tremendous performance, charismatic and an absolute blast to watch. " The Independent Critic

"Wray is brilliant in the lead role, showcasing an engaging turn that is filled with equal parts dilemma and desperation. As she searches for the right human to become The Chosen, the audience is fully invested in her quest...and Wray could certainly stand up to the demands of a longer portrayal." UK Film Review
