"[With] Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, in two of the best performances of the year....Sam Mendes reads minds when words aren't enough, and has every detail right."Chicago Sun-Times Ranked #6 in Rolling Stone's 'Movies Of The Year' -- "Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are brilliant..."Rolling Stone 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Directed with extraordinary skill by Sam Mendes....DiCaprio is in peak form...And the glorious Winslet defines what makes an actress great, blazing commitment to a character and the range to make every nuance felt."Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he performances are superb, and the film is beautifully shot. And the dialogue, much of it lifted directly from Yates' books, is contemplative and incisive."USA Today "Only a stone, frankly, would not be captured by the honesty and intensity of Winslet's performance, by the breathtaking way she throws herself into this lacerating emotional maelstrom."Los Angeles Times "The directing, acting, set design -- it's all top notch; Michael Shannon is especially good..."Premiere 4 stars out of 5 -- "[An] intelligent and emotionally dense adaptation....Winslet gives a brilliantly detailed performance of swallowed emotions that will almost certainly result in gold-plated kudos comes awards time."Box Office "Winslet has the tricky job of making us see the glimmer of wisdom in April's cockeyed plan, and she pulls it off....Winslet is so meticulous in her telegraphed despair that she intrigues us..." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "This fertile soil for choice moments of observation and nuance....The most moving then in the film is the on-top-form DiCaprio's devastating physical reaction at a particular moment."Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "There's plenty to admire here. DiCaprio and Winslet channel much nuance into their home-based hell."Total Film "Sam Mendes's spiritually depleted film exerts an undeniable pull as its beautiful, doomed protagonists navigate the ennui of adult life."Washington Post "[B]eautifully shot, unimpeachably acted...[the] film spins a slow-motion tragedy out of everyday frustrations..."A.V.

"Krasinski's 'baby stroller blow-up' is acted with genuine anarchic spirit, and Rudolph gets a nice monologue under an orange tree toward the film's end."Film Comment "[The] production values have a nice, grassroots texture, including Ellen Kuras' cinematography and John Dunn's costume design..."Hollywood Reporter 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Rudolph] gives a wonderful turn that is certainly the best work of her career."Box Office "Krasinski and Rudolph do their honest best to play it like a shabbier, less symmetrical Wes Anderson. Naturally Mendes gives them just the right, tasteful music cues to really emphasize the sweetness of it all."Movieline 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph are one of the most appealing and believable screen couples to star in a romantic comedy. Not only do they project chemistry, but they adeptly switch between broad comedy and poignancy, sometimes in the same scene."USA Today "[A] disarming road comedy about parents-to-be looking for a place to call home....Working from a bright, keenly observed script by married authors Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida, director Sam Mendes embarks on a picaresque journey across North America..." -- Grade: B+A.V. Club 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Burt and Verona are two characters rarely seen in the movies: thirtysomething, educated, healthy, self-employed, gentle, thoughtful, whimsical, not neurotic and really truly in love."Chicago Sun-Times "[The film] feels like a respite from the false happily-ever-afters of most mainstream movies....The appeal of AWAY WE GO is heightened by its two stars..."Washington Post 4 stars out of 5 -- The screenplay by married novelists Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida is sweary, funny and heartbreakingly tender. Its also lit up by terrific performances.Total Film "[A] sweet and touching look at a young unmarried couple defiantly trying to put down roots before their child is born." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly32.75054

Variety Ranked #1 in Rolling Stone's "Ten Best Movies of 1999" -- "...[A] justly celebrated look at what gets lost in life when we numb ourselves to feeling..." Rolling Stone "...Sees beauty in our most common mistakes and failures. This is a masterpiece..." -- 5 out of 5 stars Premiere "...AMERICAN BEAUTY is that rare instance where all the elements of a movie -- story, setting, acting, shot construction -- come together to convey its message..." Box Office "...Spacey gives sardonic snap to every line he delivers....The movie is a beaut. It's as feeling as it is funny, a quality recent movies seemed to have lost..."USA Today "...Unsettling, unnerving, undefinable....BEAUTY is a blood-chilling dark comedy with unexpected moments of both fury and warmth, a strange, brooding and very accomplished film that sets us back on our heels from its opening frames..." Los Angeles Times "...Spacey, an actor who embodies intelligence in his eyes and voice, is the right choice for Lester Burnham..." Chicago Sun-Times32.53675
