2.5 of 4

“..while it shows the marks of some of those restrictions, and the occasional intrusions of a too-rigid screenwriter, it's an often funny, character-driven piece..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..Union Square feels like 80 minutes of Savoca dusting off the cobwebs, so it makes sense that she'd extend her characters the same generosity..”
by Scott Tobias [NPR]
“..superbly colorful performance by Mira Sorvino, the film grabs hold of the viewer from the jump and snowballs toward a deftly moving and concise third act..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..Sorvino brings a spark, but neither she nor Patti LuPone, in an amusing cameo, can overcome the clockwork-like plod to the end..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
2.5 of 4

“..it doesn't pretend to be anything more than it is - a slice-o'-life domestic drama/dark comedy of manners savvy about its limits and sufficiently disciplined to keep its convolutions to a credible, impactful minimum..”
by James Adams [Globe and Mail]
“..has the busy, hemmed-in talkiness of a theater piece, with too much forced to happen in too short a time. But it also has a lively, nervous energy and an expansive sympathy for the mismatched women at its heart..”
by A.O. Scott [NY Times]
