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. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, May 2, 2013

Fresh: This is a melancholy wisp of a movie. Yet it lingers in the heart. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, May 2, 2013

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. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, May 2, 2013

Rotten: The result is at once skillfully observed and a bit so-what. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Sep 11, 2012

Great performance overall by Penn and Imogen!
