The Hollywood Reporter
A drab, minor-key melodrama. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
A compelling family melodrama somewhat in the manner of late John Cassavetes or early Robert Altmanthe film combines high production values, terrific acting and a distinctively American lyricism in a combination you hardly ever see these days. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Alan, who Mr. Sachs has said was based on his own father, is a great character - passionate, complicated, bursting with life. Those words also describe Mr. Torn's performance. Full Review
Duane Byrge
The Hollywood Reporter
A drab, minor-key melodrama. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion A.V. Club
Investing a lot of time on each corner of his three-sided character piece, director Ira Sachs (who co-wrote the film with Michael Rohatyn) has created a film as dramatically intense as it is opaque. Full Review
