  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he most satisfying performance comes from the accomplished stage actress Amy Ryan who matches Hoffman scene-by-scene."
    Box Office

    "Ms. Rubin-Vega, with anger and defeat lurking behind her mask of competence and resilience, is stealthily heartbreaking, as is Mr. Ortiz..."
    New York Times

    "There are echoes of everything from THE FISHER KING to PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE in Philip Seymour Hoffman's subdued directorial debut, but screenwriter Bob Glaudini -- who adapted his own play -- finds a few particularly touching grace notes in the familiar dynamic."
    A.V. Club

    "Hoffman, a versatile and tactile actor, gives a charming, shuffling performance here, albeit one with a bit of an edge..."

    3 stars out of 4 -- "The actors make it new and poignant....The emotions of these characters come from hearts long worn down by the troubles we see."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[Hoffman] fuels the film with subtleties, from the slow burn of a love story to a lazy, piano-infused score....It lulls you with its slow-warming heart."
