    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    This is not, frankly, a movie you'll remember long after you see it. But it has just enough moments of genuine intimacy to indicate that Masterson ought to give directing another try. show more

    The story is certainly predictable, but it contains just enough conflict and drama to engage the viewer. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Masterson, like many actors, is an assured director even in her debut; working with her brother Pete as cinematographer, she creates a spell and a tenderness and pushes exactly as far as this story should go. show more
