    An excellent tale of lost innocence. Daniel Day-Lewis is extraordinary!

    Might not have been a bad film if its characters never said anything and some obnoxious visual metaphors were removed.
  2. Shaky story and predictable developments make this an off-key ballad.

    Well-wrought individual scenes and sharply focused acting provide Rebecca Miller's third feature with a measure of gravity, but too much abrupt, even melodramatic behavior and undigested psychological matter leave nagging dissatisfactions.
