    Walter Addiego San Francisco Chronicle

    Has an impressive cast and captures some of that era's fuzzy rebelliousness and humanism, but taken on its own the picture is finally thin stuff. show more

    Chicago Tribune

    A slow starter. But what appears to be the cliched "uptight nerd liberated by flighty sprite" tale--done better in films from "Bringing Up Baby" to "Barefoot in the Park"--evolves into something deeper, darker, more resonant. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    The entire script, which boils down to a hopelessly embarrassing lesson about "this beautiful place that can make people live again," seems to have been written within arm's reach of a bong. show more

    Film Threat

    Just the type of small film that, if given a chance to be seen by audiences, could become somewhat of a hit for grownups ala "Sideways" or "The Squid and the Whale." show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    It's like the Sixties never happened, or maybe happened too much. show more

    Bill White Seattle Post-Intelligencer

    Not a moment rings true in this sentimental drama. show more

    Joe Leydon Variety

    Its low-key charms are considerable enough to engage venturesome ticketbuyers. show more

    Village Voice

    Jeremy Strong's minimalist performance in the lead role makes for an unconvincing character arc--he seems almost as ill-at-ease and dispirited by the end of the film as he does at the beginning. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    These characters are fully alive. But the movie attaches them to a conventional, not to say creaky, hip-meets-square drama. show more
