Offers something magical in the haunting and hypnotic performance of Sarah Polley...(the film) cuts deep.
As talented as Polley proved herself in "The Sweet Hereafter" and "Go," this is her best work yet.
Should make Polley, memorable in "The Sweet Hereafter" and "Go," into a bona-fide star.
Polley's doe-eyed innocence is in overdrive.
At the heart of the film, Polley - with her wary, unsure stares, her open smile and beguiling intelligence - is terrific.
A shy and depressed college graduate falls in love with a Bohemian artist, as in Woody Allen's "Manhattan."
The cumbersome wrap-up, which follows a four-year narrative gap, seems too fanciful and bogs down what has been a stronger second hour.
