    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

    Richard James Havis The Hollywood Reporter

    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

    Superior acting elevates a small, overcrowded ensemble piece set in rural upstate New York into something a little deeper and truer than the mawkish disease-of-the-week movie it threatens to become. show more

    Los Angeles Times

    A bland ensemble drama with an unremarkable script that somehow inspired actress Mary Stuart Masterson to make her feature-directing debut. The material doesn't serve her well -- and vice versa. show more

    Andrea Gronvall Chicago Reader

    Jayce Bartok--who plays Stanford's irresponsible musician brother--wrote the screenplay, whose central story of doomed young love gets lost amid the overplotting. show more
