    Kind of strange movie, with a lot of dull charakters, but Kristen Stewart is just great in it, she "carries it out of the darkness into the light" ;)

  1. The story is certainly predictable, but it contains just enough conflict and drama to engage the viewer.

    A vibrant, unpretentious small-town tale.

    There's no kind of wonderful in Mary Stuart Masterson's directorial debut, yet however slight her ensemble drama--about two distressed families in the Rockwellian framings of time-forgotten rural America--maybe, it's at least convincing in its genuine sweetness.
