Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: I must confess that there were long stretches in Heights when I felt that the proceedings were a tad too 'theatrical' for my taste.
Fresh: 'We don't know how to be people of passion,' [Glenn Close] exclaims to a collection of rapt acting students, early in the film. She might as well be admonishing the movie's cast.
Fresh: Heights is far from a perfect movie, but as a hint of Terrio's talent, it's an eminently watchable effort.
Fresh: Amy Fox's play, with New York cliches for characters, was never going to hit, ahem, the movie heights. But cut loose in the middle of a comic-book summer, Heights is just different enough, just adult enough, to warrant a climb and a look.
