Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Walks the delicate boundary between politically inflected realism and costumed sentimentality. Full Review
David Stratton
This depiction of the trials and tribulations of a working-class Catholic family during the Depression is a far more intimate viewing experience than the similarly themed "Angela's Ashes." Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Downbeat, ultimately tragic, but there's a wondrous, sad beauty here. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Frears makes every note count for a lot in this beautifully gauged microcosm of big emotions expressed in small gestures. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
There is something about Stephen Frears' complex, heartbreaking, beautifully made Liam that seems to speak eloquently, painfully to the dilemmas we are facing today, to the terrible price dark times can extort from us all. Full Review
