    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    A small but moving film that gets the details right (life in a sleepy burg, sidewalk chats between old high school pals) and gets at the heart of human longing for family, for love. show more

    It's the sum of things not spoken, things too painful to express, that's the heart of this quietly moving drama. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It's rare to get a good movie about the touchy adult relationship of a sister and brother. Rarer still for the director to be more fascinated by the process than the outcome. This is one of the best movies of the year. show more
