  1. Rarely have two actresses been so effortless in their intimacy.
  2. 80
    A minimum of fuss and a welcome lack of clichés. For these things alone, Tumbleweeds should be not only praised, but seen
  3. One of those wonderful, deeply personal pictures that pop up every now and then to lift your spirits.
  4. An alt-country paean to libidinal mothers and the little girls who clean up the mess.
  5. What keeps these mother-daughter tumbleweeds from drifting right out of consciousness is the unique rapport between the actresses.
  6. The story is as rambling as the characters, but superb acting by McTeer and Brown goes a long way toward redeeming it.
  7. It's a wonderfully nuanced performance in an otherwise un-nuanced narrative.
