  • Summary: Over the course of four days, four suburban families will open up and lean on one another, sharing their burdens and joys, and help each other remember, it is the people we know and love - not the objects we own - that provide real hope and security to face whatever life throws at us.

    A genuine and tangible fondness and respect for the characters and their eccentricities.
  2. 80
    This is not the easiest film in the world to untangle, but our attentions are soon rewarded.
  3. Eloquently adapted from the collection of A.M. Homes stories of the same title, Troche's film derives its voltage from the way it burrows to find that the connections within -- and among -- families are very much alive.

    The film leaves you dissatisfied, as though you'd just spent two hours with a menagerie of plastic white people.
  5. The result is not a quilt, just a succession of story snippets that keep interrupting one another.

    Troche has bitten off quite a bit here, and it's too much for her to chew properly.
  7. A noble attempt that doesn't hang together.
