Bosworth blossoms beautifully and Claire Bloom delivers a vocal performance so deft that her character seems to take palpable form." [11] While Shannon Houston of Paste wrote: "And While We Were Here establishes Coiro's presence as a new, potent voice in filmmaking."[12] Also stars Jamie Blackley, Iddo Goldberg and Claire Bloom.
