Erin Trahan wrote these lovely words about ASTER AND SIDNEY (there's a little spoiler):
"In “Aster and Sidney,” two young women (Charlotte Rea and Adjovi Koene) team up to endure a modern-day apocalypse. With minimal dialogue or musical score, they rifle through an abandoned farmhouse looking for supplies. One stuffs a pregnancy test in her knapsack without the other seeing. Tension builds as the pair encounter a stranger trekking through the same woods. Though it has no zombies, “Aster and Sidney” achieves a naturalistic atmosphere similar to the early episodes of “The Walking Dead” when the characters’ vulnerabilities were more commonplace and relatable, and much more terrifying."
