Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Fresh as spring water and warm as sunlight, it steeps us in the beauties we will always miss, if we keep dividing the world into winners and losers. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The movie explores the increasingly coarse line between nostalgia and acceptance for the way things are, without exclamatory revelation and uproarious self-pity. It's Sideways for realists. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011

Fresh: About [Kelly Reichardt's] directing, after praising her simplicity, one has to praise her daring. To make this film took considerable conviction -- and, for an artist, conviction usually entails courage. – Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It plays for a scant 73 minutes, but if feels as long as a Wagner opera. – Richard Nilsen, Arizona Republic, Jun 24, 2010
