Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

A Persona for the Jersey suburbs, Soopum Sohn's film uses the displacement of the immigrant experience as an occasion to resurrect a good ol' Bergmanian personality switch. When Korean bride Sookhy (Song) arrives in Montclair to meet her new hubby, she's bullied into passivity until some bad 'shrooms (or is it a curse?) kills her spouse. Projecting her fantasy life onto the bleached blond next door, Sookhy goes after that woman's beau---a twist that, by spinning the narrative into questionable psychothriller territory, proves as detrimental to the movie as it does to the neighbor.
