Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Full of nuance and complexity, but it is also as accessible and engrossing as a grand 19th-century novel. Full Review
David Edelstein
The Best of Youth doesn't have a boring millisecond. It isn't an art film, with longueurs; it's a mini-series with the sweep of a classic novel, with tons of plot. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Those who see it will, quite frankly, not believe their luck. It is that satisfying, that engrossing, that good. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
Lo Cascio and Boni inhabit their roles with keen intellectual and emotional vigor. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
Like a great novel from a more expansive bygone age, The Best of Youth is full of big thoughts; like a great soap opera, it's also full of sharp plot turns, vibrant characters, and great talk. It is, in short, the best of cinema. Full Review
