Washington Post
Not a gentle film. Insistent and unforgettable, it wounds on the inside, and the scars feel fresh for some time. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Ms. Polley is a naturally subtle actress, and part of her appeal lies in an unusual ability to seem at once forthright and enigmatic, but this time she comes off as a bit smug. Full Review
David Stratton
With a glowing performance by Sarah Polley as the doomed woman, this Spanish-Canadian co-prod, filmed in English, is surprisingly adept at avoiding the worst cliches and most manipulative elements inherent in such a story. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
The film should at least be wise and three-dimensional enough to see Ann's motivations as a source of mystery as much as heroic self-empowerment. This one-dimensional ennoblement doesn't sit quite right. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
One of the year's sweetest surprises. It sneaks up on you, disarming you with its modesty and tenderness, its remarkable lack of self-infatuation. Full Review
