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
Variety
Wonderfully acted and slickly mad. Acutely written with an eye to the motivations and ambiguities involved on both sides in such a relationship.
75
New York Post
Should make Polley, memorable in "The Sweet Hereafter" and "Go," into a bona-fide star.
75
TNT RoughCut
Polley's doe-eyed innocence is in overdrive.
63
Chicago Tribune
A shy and depressed college graduate falls in love with a Bohemian artist, as in Woody Allen's "Manhattan."
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.
60
A good, though unremarkable, film.
60
Deftly mixes rueful sentimentality and trenchant observations about the constantly shifting balance of power that drives relationships.
50
San Francisco Examiner
Implausibly dainty.
