  1. Intelligent and holds your attention, like a mystery story unraveling.
  2. 60
    Rowlands and Unger deliver sensitive performances, Shields is surprisingly good.
  3. 60
    It's a coffee-table movie, but what saves it are a couple of performances.Rowlands puts a spin on every line reading, Harris quietly mines regret, and Shields, assured and sexy, has never been this good.

    Thank God for Brooke Shields: Spitting spite with every remark she hurls at her long-suffering mother, she's a revelation.

    Despite some memorable high points, pic plays like "Love! Valour! Compassion!" -- without the laughs.
  6. You have to admire the effort its attractive cast expends pumping life into stilted, flowery dialogue that confuses pretentious attitudinizing with profound insight.
  7. Bloodless, lip-biting psycho-carnage.
