I got in on the last half hour of this movie the other day and was immediately drawn into the story. Ms. Howard is absolutely wonderful and Mr. Evans really got the southern accent down pat. One day I hope both lead actors get the credit they are due for the work that they do. I also think this one is really well acted, in fact the actors or way better than the storyline. Forgive me Tennessee

I really loved this movie. It was beautifully filmed -perfect locations-good acting -if I didn't know better, I would swear it was filmed in the 1940's. Reminded me a little of Gone with the Wind - but not so epic. Bryce seemed to be channeling Vivian Leigh/Scarlett O'Hara which wasn't annoying but actually worked here. I

as much as i like this girl...shes simply adorable...but she tends to make bad movies. Im wondering if this next one is going straight to DVD. It seems to have a problem getting released.

If she wants a serious career, she needs to get away from this quirky directors and make a real

Despite Teardrop Diamond's rough edges, the filmmaker, who has spent much of her career acting on stage and screen, succeeds in transporting us back to that other time; capturing the lyricism of the dialogue and the fetid South that Williams so brilliantly envisioned where nearly everything goes to rot.

Descends with dismaying speed into clichd Southern melodrama. Full Review

Variety
The fragrant aroma of magnolias is undercut by the distinct smell of mothballs throughoutThe Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, an admirably earnest but curiously flat attempt to film a long-unproduced scenario by Tennessee Williams. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
The story is a sketchy, dramatically muddled rumination on familiar Williams themes about the Old South and its brave, beautiful, rebellion women always on the brink of love, suicide or madness. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
Howard looks peachy, and actor-turned-director Jodie Markell sweats the details -- moonlight, honeyed accents -- but the brittle script resists restoration. Full Review
