Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A slow but rewarding drama."
‑ Scott G. Mignola, Common Sense Media
"A fine film that showcases early Baltimore."
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
"Typically misdirected Barry Levinson film, but impressively ambitious."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A richly detailed and lovingly developed film about family feeling written and directed by Barry Levinson."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Tracing the fortunes and misfortunes of an extended family of Jewish immigrants, this melancholy memory film is too soft and episodic, lacking the narrative focus of either Diner or Tin Men, which form a trilogy."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Solid Levinson tale, well acted"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"A moving look at what has been lost as families have adapted to American life."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online
"An overstuffed family drama that's not nearly as magical as it thinks it is."
‑ John Wirt, Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
"Beautiful movie about families and how they can grow apart. Great Thanksgiving day selection!"
‑ Willie Waffle, WaffleMovies.com
"Levinson ends his Baltimore Trilogy in very fine form."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
