    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    It's a lovely film that grows along with the characters. At first, it seems like a pleasing but inconsequential comedy. But it deepens as their connection deepens and opens up into a place of poignancy and insight. show more

    Stephen Farber The Hollywood Reporter

    Sparkling dialogue would count for little without two actors to deliver it expertly. Garcia (who is also one of the producers of the film) is generally cast in more serious roles, but he revealed a gift for comedy in "City Island" a few years ago, and he revisits that terrain rewardingly here. Farmiga is marvelous. show more

    Though it's fun to watch Garcia let out his inner goofball, the jewels in the crown of At Middleton are the dynamic sisters Farmiga. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Small as it is, the film itself functions as a catchy, bittersweet waltz. You've heard it before, but the dancers are fun to watch. show more

    Rex Reed New York Observer

    Entertaining dialogue and a collection of tightly knit performances — especially a wonderful, unexpectedly funny star turn by Andy Garcia — make At Middleton a nice surprise. show more

    At Middleton is an innocuous romantic comedy. show more

    Sara Stewart New York Post

    None of this is particularly innovative, although Garcia and the elder Farmiga develop a nice spark and a gentle humor in their characters’ stolen day together. show more

    At Middleton is the just the sort of trite if inoffensive diversion that barely tiptoes into theaters before landing in the cable and video-on-demand listings. show more

    Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic

    At Middleton is an almost completely inauthentic little romance that is so genuinely pleasant you’ll enjoy it anyway. show more

    Scott Tobias The Dissolve

    Farmiga and Garcia have a chemistry that’s unassuming and sneaky, and the pleasure they get from each other’s company ultimately proves infectious. show more
