REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the most tasteful of explicit dramatization..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..proceeds as a tedious, clumsy diddle, constantly reminding viewers how much progress has been made since the Victorian era..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
“..comes across as a rather superficial brand of art house comedy that offers moderate entertainment value but little more..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
