    The film as a whole operates in Mr. Anderson's patented, semi-precious zone of antic and droll. It's not as if the filmmaker has gone off the rails. He's just not solidly on them. show more

    A movie about people who literally carry a lot of emotional baggage, metaphorically unpack it, and spiritually lighten their loads. By the end, I felt lighter. Which is closer to enlightenment than most movies get. show more

    A picture that certain Brits and connoisseurs of British colloquial English might call "a grower" … more moving and funny the more I think about it. show more
