What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Diane de Beer The characters draw you in with their very ordinariness
Laetitia Pople Vrygewige Kate se worsteling boei
Kirk Honeycutt All of the sensibilities of a finely tuned short story
Richard Mowe Struggling with struggle in the most charming of ways
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert The movie is about imperfect characters in a difficult world, who mostly do the best they can under the circumstances, but not always. Do you realize what a revolutionary approach that is for a movie these days?
Peter Travers There's no movie around right now with a subject more pertinent. It'll hit you hard.
Tomatometer Nicole Holofcener's newest might seem slight in places, but its rendering of complex characters in a conflicted economic landscape is varied, natural, and touching all the same.
