  • This movie is not a collection of parts from other films. It's an original, and what it does best is show how strangers can become friends, and friends can become like family. show more

  • Its one flaw occurs when the film concocts a fake conflict between the women in an attempt to add some drama. The plot device doesn't do great damage, but it is enough to keep the film from being a hands-down four-star movie. show more

  • The film's occasional jarring shifts in tone are a liability, but not a fatal one: It's a character-driven piece and the beautifully-crafted characters mask the narrative flaws. show more
