Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A thoughtful thesis on the melodrama but a letdown in its attempt to serve as an affecting example of that genre."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times
"The actors make up for the relative thinness of the material. Smith navigates the emotional terrain with great skill."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Smith gives a stellar performance in the role, building a character whose motivation is a mystery but whose emotions are deeply felt. Too bad the film doesn't really have anywhere to go with such talent."
‑ Radheyan Simonpillai, NOW Toronto
