What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry A boring narrative.
Mariana Malan Gryp kyker nooit werklik aan nie.
Carina Chocano Pop psych just plods along.
Annette Bayne Although Evening is beautifully filmed, the emotional impact is limited and too often there is dangerous slip-sliding into mawkish sentimentality.
Laura Bushell A raft of award-winners head up the cast and crew of Evening, but this slick-loooking melodrama heaves under the weight of all those gongs.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert There are few things more depressing than a weeper that doesn't make you weep
James Berardinelli The strength of the screenplay and acting provide a satisfying, although not overwhelming, two hours of romance, drama, and tragedy.
Peter Travers Susan Minot’s resplendent novel stumbles on its way to the screen.
While not awful, Evening is slow and boring enough that it might just have viewers contemplating their own regrets, including spending the time and/or money to sit down in front of this.
Tomatometer Beautifully filmed, but decidedly dull.
