  1. The sense of continuing life is quietly remarkable.
  2. Spring Forward is so fully realized and so moving that you wish you could get away with merely saying: "Go see it for yourself."
  3. You realize this is a story about the life beyond this movie, about the great changes in life we never give ourselves time to consider. And for a moviegoing experience, that's a lot of bang for your buck.

    It's a pleasure to watch these unhurried, character-driven vignettes when such great actors are anchoring them.
  5. 80
    A resonance that is moving beyond all measure.
  6. The movie's seven scenes were filmed in real time (as opposed to condensed editing-room time) over the course of a year, giving the drama an extra touch of realism and humanity.
  7. 60
    Tom Gilroy's debut feature is a little obvious, but it's an excellent showcase for the criminally underused Ned Beatty.
