“..not everything needs to be spelled out, of course, but for a film to be effective - and affective -..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
3 of 5

“..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..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
“..grown-up romance and disturbing psychology make a satisfying match..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
