    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    It's dreadful, but it's a special kind of dreadful -- the kind designed to appeal to intelligent people on principle. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Very little actually happens in the movie. There are no cathartic breakdowns or soul-changing epiphanies. Instead, we're offered a collection of small moments that feel so familiar, they remind us how false most films really are. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    So much is unspoken and this slice of reality is so thin and slow as to make the film downright unsatisfying. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    A high-wire act, treading a thin line of truth between hokum and homilies. You hold your breath, waiting to see if the filmmakers misstep, but they never do. show more

    The movie is not plot-driven, for which we must be thankful, because to force their feelings into a plot would be a form of cruelty. The whole point is that these lives have no plot. show more

    A well-built machine that dunks you into a big warm vat of sadness. There's no plot: It's a situation drama. Instead of punch lines, it delivers regular shots of heartbreak. show more

    Connie Ogle Miami Herald

    The film, bound to bore the socks off impatient viewers, mistakes reserve for depth and ends up hamstringing its talented cast into playing characters you never care about all that much. show more

    Janice Page Boston Globe

    Ultimately undercut by its fictional elements and its flat characters. show more
