Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's sweet, sentimental, almost inevitably touching if not especially persuasive, brushing against the thorns in each man's life without drawing blood.
Fresh: This is a melancholy wisp of a movie. Yet it lingers in the heart.
Fresh: Jeff's accidental drowning death in 1997, at 30, underscores the sense of loss in a heartfelt and deeply moving film. It'll get to you.
Rotten: The result is at once skillfully observed and a bit so-what.
Penn can sing
Great performance by Penn.
This is wonderful! Love Penn. Who knew... What a voice. So soulful. Story broke my heart.
Great performance overall by Penn and Imogen!
Whoa such a lovely movie, I didn't know Penn can sing so well. Imogen + Penn's chemistry just shows in this movie. A must see!
