    LaGravenese may be unsteady at the helm, but his film insinuates like a torch song that keeps messing with your head. show more

    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    Much about Living Out Loud is pretty far-fetched, but at least it accurately portrays the dating possibilities for newly divorced women of a certain age. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Living Out Loud is not a monumental motion picture. In fact, in many ways, it's quite the opposite - a quiet, unassuming story of friendship and love that uses richly-developed characters to charm its audience. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Ostensibly an "adult comedy" about serious things, screenwriter Richard LaGravenese's disjointed directing debut rings profoundly false, a story about class distinctions and suffering conceived and executed in privilege. show more
