    As an affecting romance between a woman caught between two worlds, it very nearly sticks the landing. As a showcase for Ms. Bosworth, never better, it's often sublime.

    It's to Coiro's credit that no one emerges as a villain — and that, however painful, on the other side lies hope.

    Just good enough to pique your curiosity, but never quite good enough to captivate.

    Subject matter that seemed mildly shocking, even radical, a half-century ago may be impossible to refresh, though the screenplay, by Ms. Coiro, has a firm grasp of its characters.

    Though the film plays like late-era Woody Allen — not necessarily a good thing — and Goldberg’s rambunctiousness is more annoying than liberating, there’s a serious depth of feeling here. Bosworth, thankfully, is attuned to that, and makes the most of it.

    We see a storybook landscape enchant the pair, but we never feel it.

    Suggests a version of Roberto Rossellini's Voyage to Italy reworked as a photo diary posted on Facebook.
