"A fizzy, huggable portrait of a self-made, roughly blended queer family."

— Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter

"There are many greatly moving moments in the director’s third feature, all connected by a heartfelt understanding of the value of nurturing companionship."

— Rafaela Sales Ross, Little White Lies

"A kinetic, chaotic yet absorbing and authentic portrait of a queer and Roma family... Stolevski is a bold, gifted filmmaker and Housekeeping for Beginners... does not compromise in its storytelling."

— Frank J. Avella, Awards Daily

"For all the apparent chaos, this is a tightly controlled piece of work which fully delivers on the promise of Stolevski’s earlier films. It’s a fascinating change of direction which marks him out as one of the most promising talents of his generation."

— Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film

"A phenomenal achievement – an untamed, densely detailed drama that crackles with so much feral energy, you practically get a static shock from the screen... a rattling, eye-catching sensory assault, with something of the spirit of Kirill Mikhanovsky’s hectically compassionate Give Me Liberty."

— Wende Ide, Screen Daily
