Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The gently nostalgic mood and sleepy pacing effectively erase the movie's necessary edge.
Fresh: Maggie Greenwald's first adult-oriented feature since 'Songcatcher' is an affecting, rose-scented study of small-town prejudice and female friendship.
Fresh: There's a clumsy, soapy tepidness to the procession of plot points, but within individual scenes, the actors pierce the genteel surface.
Rotten: The premise... demands more heat and complexity than this hokey 2016 drama provides.
