Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars
This low-key road movie covers familiar ground, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Introspective, video-camera-wielding Elliot (Fitzpatrick) visits Matthew, an old friend from their time in foster care. Matthew is dying of cancer. At his funeral, Elliot meets Lily (Moss) and Gray (Denham), who both knew Matthew later in life. On impulse, they steal his ashes and set out for Mexico, where Gray thinks Matthew would want his ashes spread. Along the road, they share their grief and discuss their own messed-up lives. Weigel has a nice eye for wide-screen composition, and the three actors give their all to parts that feel ordered from the earnest-indie-film catalog.
