“..melodrama often risks the ridiculous to achieve the sublime, and though this unabashedly earnest tearjerker doesn't completely transcend its narrative absurdities, it's enough of a distinctively odd duck to keep you engaged..”

“..grown-up romance and disturbing psychology make a satisfying match..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
