Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The medical tidbits, however awkwardly presented, are the most distinctive aspects of the script. The flat direction, alas, is not the work of a filmmaker.
Fresh: Landau's performance here is a deftly calibrated thing of beauty, and it ranks among his finest work since his Oscar-winning turn as a frail Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton's "Ed Wood."
Fresh: A compassionate portrayal of lives stripped down to bare essentials by aging, illness, and loss.
Abe and Phil are on the money and so funny!
