  • Ms. Englert's performance isn't as interesting as it might have been if the writing hadn't favored Ginger. But Ms. Fanning, a young actress of seemingly unerring instincts, is a wonder. show more

  • The film’s small scale is more than compensated for by its insights into adolescent awareness, the passions stoked by global causes and the moral hypocrisy of the ideologically righteous. show more

  • An intriguingly complex portrait of both of its characters and of the time of flux they live in. show more

    Cliched teenage angst about the bomb. Ell Fanning and Alice Englert did very well portraying their characters. Loved a lot of the political ideals and quotes. But this movie is slow to get no where. Great actors like Annette Bening and Oliver Platt couldn\'t save the monotony of this movie. YAWN!

    terrible slow plodding drama of teenage angst in a 60\'s unconventional dysfuntional britis home. a good cast and fine acting don\'t slavage the insipid story and ponderous direction. pass on this one.

    Very simple story, very simple dialogue, thought it missed the mark...i don\'t recommend except as a rental.
