Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The only reason I can think of to watch Vivi Friedman's flat, satirical farce "The Family Tree" - and it's not a good enough reason - is the opportunity to play a game of spot the semi-star. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Aug 25, 2011

Rotten: Friedman's inability to successfully reconcile the film's duality undercuts an eclectic cast gamely committed to Mark Lisson's thematically ambitious, if scattered, script. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Aug 25, 2011

Rotten: [It makes] a small case for not succumbing to nostalgic malaise -- too bad it's in a genre as played-out as [the] lead characters' passion. – Mark Holcomb, Village Voice, Aug 23, 2011

Rotten: To judge from the talent she drew for her shaky debut, Vivi Friedman must either be very well connected or an awfully smooth talker. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Aug 26, 2011
