    Nathan Adloff's Nate & Margaret is an endearing, hopeful, and quietly radical film.

    This is a smart, observant movie about two very particular people, and its casting is pitch-perfect.

    Blessed with natural performances and brisk pacing, this unusual little movie would like us to know just one thing: Passion is fine, but a pal is priceless.

    Narrative conflicts are introduced and swatted away in favor of an amiable sentimentality, two nice people being nice to each other.

    Moving, engagingly low-key curio.

    Director-cowriter Nathan Adloff displays real sensitivity toward the central characters, yet he hasn't crafted a story in which his observations might carry any weight.
