  1. 90
    LaGravenese (writer of "The Fisher King," adapter of "The Bridges of Madison County," making his directorial debut) eschews distractions of style and molds our attention to the performances.
  2. 80
    The sinews in Holly Hunter's neck and arms tighten like cables hauled in by a winch; she's all wired up, and in Richard LaGravenese's lovely comedy about loneliness in New York she uses the tension as a source of comedy.
  3. Reviewed by: Bob McCabe
    This is a film about performances and features simply some of the best seen in years.
  4. 70
    The fluidity with which the story frequently makes the transition between the different characters' perspectives is refreshing, even daring.
  5. Reviewed by: J.D. LaFrance
    LaGravenese has an uncanny ability to write realistic female characters.
  6. Reviewed by: Daniel M. Kimmel
    This feminist comedy shot through with fantasies about the travails of newly single womanhood strikes some rich chords, but doesn't quite put together a complete tune.
  7. What little grace there is in Living Out Loud (and there isn't much) is all in LaGravenese's script, not on the screen.
