REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..never quite becomes anything more than a mildly diverting thriller..”
by David Nusair [Reel Film Reviews]
“..," a drama that mixes originality with clich?s to predictably ill effect..”
by Shlomo Schwartzberg [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..has a bracing, off-kilter sensibility-a mixture of mordant humor and melancholy-that mostly compensates for the occasional lulls and clunky, obvious moments..”
by Tim Knight [Reel]
