Village Voice
This '70s-era teen romance from the director of "Halloween II" and the screenwriter of "Mean Creek" is a quietly effective number, a little like an '80s John Hughes movie without the laughs (not an insult in this case). Full Review
Bill White
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
A coming-of-age movie in which nobody comes of age. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
The performances by Smith, Brewster and veteran David Morse, as a morbidly depressed widower, elevate Nearing Grace to something near grace. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
The richness of the characters and themes in Nearing Grace inspire director Rick Rosenthal and his cast to create a film with terrific emotional energy and larkish humor. Full Review
Laura Kern
The New York Times
There's nothing remotely surprising in the entire film. But the generally winning -- and freakishly good-looking -- cast, endowed by Jacob Aaron Estes's script with intelligent, if occasionally overwritten dialogue, makes for viewing that is easy on the eyes and the ears. Full Review
