“Filippo Meneghetti’s debut feature “Two of Us” is an entirely unique and uniquely vital lesbian love story.” – Variety


“Beautifully crafted and perfectly cast, the film touches on everything from keeping up appearances and family dynamics between parents and adult children to a critique of retirement homes that over-medicate residents.” – Screen Daily
