Critic Reviews

  1. 60
    Surprisingly, it works: The overwhelming natural expanse of the New Mexico desert is perfectly balanced by the psychic space Charley and Arlene create - the space where all the real action takes place.
  2. Simmons plays it understated, conveying a sad-sack quality that's more relatable than Charley's irrational catatonia. The movie should have been about him instead.
  3. 58
    One of those American independent films with two chief points to recommend it: the earnest good will of its creators and its determination to be unlike any studio film.
  4. 50
    A beautifully acted if fairly poky coming-of-age story.

    A little slow paced but a terrific cast and great scenery make this a treat. Joan Allen is as usual, superb as is Valentina de Angelis. Well done.

    Really enjoyed the characters. A lot like Station Agent in that way.
