While the period drama has several redeeming features, tonally it's all over the map, veering between artsy stylization and hum-drum, sometimes almost twee melodrama. Full Review

Washington Post
That none of the protagonists earns the audience's sympathy is more likely a failure of the real-life characters rather than the actors, who deliver fine performances -- especially Rhys, who seems to be channeling Richard Burton channeling Dylan Thomas at his most manipulatively loutish.

The Edge of Love may be intended as a biopic of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, but it's destined to be remembered as the movie that brought Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller into the same bathtub. Full Review
Gary Goldstein
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. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Sometimes glossy, sometimes hard-edged, the film alternates between glitz and unpleasantness and ends as a kind of glum soap opera, too glam to be bleak and too bleak to be so glam. Full Review
