Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Somewhere in the translation from stage to screen, David Auburn's powerful Pulitzer Prize-winning play was transformed into a goopy Gwyneth Paltrow movie.
Fresh: Paltrow is pretty commanding, even if Madden pushes things toward airlessness by keeping the camera so tight. The anguish on that lovely, haggard face -- you're right there with her, yearning for the moment you both can finally breathe.
Fresh: Few movies regard the psyche with such sober discernment.
Fresh: Once you get past that golden swag and curtain of hair, Paltrow's performance is devastating, cutting to the pith and marrow of parent-child relations.
