Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: At no point did I feel bored or condescended to, and even though the ending may be overwrought, it had me gripping my chair.
Fresh: Lymelife doesn't have the sheer power of "The Ice Storm," but it's not just another recycling of suburban angst. By allowing their characters complexity, the Martinis spill open those tiny model homes as thoroughly as a dropped Monopoly game.
Fresh: Thanks to a strong ensemble cast, it's poignant and funny.
Rotten: The dysfunctional suburban family drama has become so ubiquitous that the genre has lost all impact.
Great, quiet film. Jill Hennessy's best work to date. Sweet script. Seamless direction.
This is a well done film
I don't think you can be disappointed by this movie if you go in without pretense. Clever, suspenseful at times, set in early 80s, the formula works. Rental obviously...do not buy a movie from iTunes (handbrake).
Yes it is. Very enjoyable, interesting film.
I don't ask for much in a film...
I like good acting, good directing, screenplay, producer...
It's all good : )
