  1. One of the best pictures so far this year, marking a high point of Rudolph's career and reconfirming the extraordinary talent Mr. Campbell has shown in earlier films. Dentistry will never seem the same.
  2. A stylish work from an accomplished, sophisticated filmmaker that bristles with intelligence and gleams with Scott's and Davis' multifaceted, astutely judged portrayals.
  3. Reviewed by: Claudia Puig

    An excellent adaptation of a wonderful work of fiction (The Age of Grief).
  4. A rarely honest, funny movie.
  5. A melancholy, well-observed film.
  6. The film is equally good in handling the discrepancy between skilled and unskilled parents.
