  • It's nothing less than a miracle that the director, Craig Gillespie, and the writer, Nancy Oliver, have been able to make such an endearing, intelligent and tender comedy from a premise that, in other hands, might sustain a five-minute sketch on TV. show more

  • A deep, sweet-hearted study not only of one lonely character but also of the community that supports him. show more

  • By movie's end, it seems like the only one giving a truly genuine performance is Bianca. Mouth-agape, steadfastly mum. show more
