  1. One of the most powerful romances of recent years, it is as generous as they come.
  2. Offbeat tale, which tackles weighty themes. But sentimentality overtakes intelligence.
  3. 75
    It's almost startling to see a film that believes in itself and its characters so deeply.
  4. As involved as Crudup and Connelly beseech you to be with this story, their very youthfulness, their nagging lack of adulthood, keeps the film from being anything more credible than a tight grad-school tryst.
  5. 50
    Its evocation of the politics and Zeitgeist of the late '60s is so right on, as we used to say, that it left me stunned.
  6. 50
    By the time of Fielding's and Sarah's final, gooey encounter, she's not the only one who needs waking.
  7. Spanning the counterculture '70s to the more career-oriented '80s and doing justice to neither decade, this event-heavy adaptation of Scott Spencer's novel may give viewers whiplash.
