  1. The movie is filled with small moments of tenderness, insight and considerable wisdom.
  2. But as the story takes some surprising turns, it works like a slow infection: Patient audience members may find themselves awakening to the story in much the same way the characters awaken to their own capacities for tenderness.
  3. 75
    What could have been a sentimental train wreck emerges as a funny and touching portrait of three bruised people.
  4. Within this overly familiar trope, there's plenty of room for small surprises, not the least of which are delightful, understated performances all around.
  5. 70
    While the film isn’t completely perfect, director and cinematographer Shona Auerbach shows that she’s a great new filmmaking talent.
  6. A Scottish weepie of such bathos and balderdash that it deserves a drinking game in its rotten honor.
