San Francisco Chronicle
Disarms with its sincerity and frankness.
91
Entertainment Weekly
This patient, perceptive, nonjudgmental love story about age difference is the first to convincingly explain the temporal physics of May-December romances.
90
Rolling Stone
Offers something magical in the haunting and hypnotic performance of Sarah Polley...(the film) cuts deep.
88
Chicago Sun-Times
The movie's heart is in the right place.

Mr. Showbiz
As talented as Polley proved herself in "The Sweet Hereafter" and "Go," this is her best work yet.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
At the heart of the film, Polley - with her wary, unsure stares, her open smile and beguiling intelligence - is terrific.

New York Post
Should make Polley, memorable in "The Sweet Hereafter" and "Go," into a bona-fide star.
63
USA Today
The cumbersome wrap-up, which follows a four-year narrative gap, seems too fanciful and bogs down what has been a stronger second hour.
63
New York Daily News
Polley, the paraplegic incest victim in Atom Egoyan's "The Sweet Hereafter," gives a mesmerizing central performance.
63
Chicago Tribune
A shy and depressed college graduate falls in love with a Bohemian artist, as in Woody Allen's "Manhattan."
63
While the appeal of Guinevere is decidedly intermittent, it's there, and the acting is right on the money.
