  • 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. (IFC Films)

    All the acting in it is flawless, an overflowing handful of polished jewels.

    A genuine and tangible fondness and respect for the characters and their eccentricities.
  3. Troche is most interested in exploring the secret lives hidden inside freshly painted Colonials, and what she finds is that everyone's secret is exactly the same: a crushing inability to connect with the people closest to them.
  4. 63
    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.
  6. The overall effect is imaginative but overambitious, though Troche unquestionably has cinematic talent.
  7. A noble attempt that doesn't hang together.
