    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.

    It's a bummer that the movie settles for such an oft-mined vein of bummed-outedness—for a few minutes, Coiro really had me going.

    Gorgeous location filming on Italy’s Amalfi Coast and a voice-only performance by the great Claire Bloom as an elderly woman remembering World War II are the main attractions in Kat Coiro’s familiarly snoozy romantic drama.

    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.

    A committed Bosworth gives herself over to the role. Yet, there’s ultimately no real role for her to play.

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