Sometime late in LYMELIFE the director Derick Martini cuts to a close-up of a weeping teenager....Its an unexpectedly moving image, a reminder that the close-up, in its ability to bring us near to the poetry of the human face, remains one of cinemas most potent if often squandered techniques.New York Times [A] fine chronicle of disaffection, dissolution and lust on Long Island in the 1970s...Movieline "[T]his keenly observed film wrenches gallows humor out of a crumbling family....It's a movie that gets under the skin."Los Angeles Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "[An] absorbing and well-acted tale of two unhappy families in 1979 suburbia....The writing -- by director Derick Martini and his brother Steven -- is sharp, funny and sometimes emotionally raw."USA Today 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The film is about the distance between the ideal and the real....A tender, sometimes painful, sometimes blackly comic, story. The film's characters are not types but particular people..."Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] a well-observed script....The characters' complexity and some top performances give it weight."Uncut "With its middle-class setting, its coming-of-age themes, its domestic drama, its father-son conflict, LYMELIFE may be setting up home in a plot familiar from indies such as THE ICE STORM, IMAGINARY HEROES, THE SQUID AND THE WHALE and ADVENTURELAND, but it matches all these for quality."Sight and Sound0.1621449
