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!
Funny touching film
Did not expect to love this film as much as I did! What a wonderful last film for Mr. Laundau.
Great movie, I couldn't stop crying...
