Slate
Rich, finely judged, gorgeously acted movie.

Chicago Sun-Times
Has a bracing truth that's refreshing after the phoniness of female-bonding pictures like "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood."

Salon.com
This film's intelligence and forthrightness about the things women sometimes do to one another -- and its resoluteness about where the line should be drawn in terms of selflessness between friends -- set it head and shoulders above most contemporary movies that deal with friendships between women.

Philadelphia Inquirer
A chick movie? Well, yes, but it's a whole lot cooler than that one with the "Ya-Ya's" in the title.
75
A powerful new film from British writer-director Sandra Goldbacher.
70
Under its drab contemporary trappings, the movie, is really a Jane Austen-like moral parable in which goodness is rewarded and selfishness punished.

Variety
The two appealingly played central characters and the film's enjoyable evocation of the 1970s and '80s keep it buoyant and diverting.
60
Film Threat
A sum greater than its parts. The viewer is taken on a journey spanning nearly three decades of bittersweet camaraderie and history, in which we feel that we truly know what makes Holly and Marina tick, and our hearts go out to them as both continue to negotiate their imperfect, love-hate relationship.
60
The A.V. Club
Aided by raw, committed performances from her two leads, Goldbacher makes them tough company for themselves and anyone else around them, on or off the screen.
50
Portland Oregonian
A slight, smartly dressed bit of melodrama that thinks it's gritty when it's really a bit of puff.
