  1. A wise and beautiful film.
  2. Brims with understanding of the complexities of relationships, the frailties of humankind and the possibilities of joy.
  3. At once proudly conservative, passionately idealistic and beautifully assured.
  4. 63
    Undercut by funereal pacing and an ending that seems more than a little contrived.
  5. Essentially conversations, confrontations, and an extremely pat -- and very verbal -- reconciliation.
  6. Not only is the dialogue endless...it's like driving behind a 15 mph geezer on a one-way street.
