    The actors are superb -- especially Smith, who exudes some of the live-wire charisma of the young Sean Penn in Rosenthal's "Bad Boys," and the smoldering Brewster.
  2. This film is smart, funny and, thanks in no small part to David Geddes' cinematography, it occasionally approaches the poetic.
  3. This intimate coming-of-age story benefits from excellent performances, notably Gregory Smith's.
  4. The richness of the characters and themes in Nearing Grace inspire director Rick Rosenthal and his cast to create a film with terrific emotional energy and larkish humor.
  5. The performances by Smith, Brewster and veteran David Morse, as a morbidly depressed widower, elevate Nearing Grace to something near grace.

    The casting is superb with amazing performances by all the actors. The story is well constructed but drags in a few places. All in all a good film.
