    Davidson weaves deeper questions of who a Jew is into this powerful tale of a clan shredded by the rage and hatred passed down through three generations.
  2. Leo should satisfy serious older filmgoers, even if it suffers from wobbly storytelling.
  3. Flimsy dialogue and fickle characters undercut the weighty historical demons in this fractured family portrait of three generations of men dealing with their emotional scars.
  4. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib

    A radiant perf by Annie Parisse and a virtuoso turn by Eli Wallach are insufficient to lift this male intergenerational angst-fest out of the ghetto.
  5. The film’s rich performances, in which every shade of every character’s emotions registers, can go only so far to camouflage the glaring lapses in a drama that often confuses hints and allusions with coherent storytelling.
  6. Throughout, Davidson's intentions are honest but become lost in a haze of overly familiar story beats.
