November shapes up to be one mighty bad month for photographer Sophie Jacobs (Courteney Cox). When her innocent-bystander boyfriend is shot during a convenience-store robbery in midtown Los Angeles, photographer Sophie has a breakdown of sorts and finds the fine line between fantasy and reality blurring as her sanity starts to slowly dissipate. Also stars James LeGros, Anne Archer and Nora Dunn.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There is much promise here from the young director, Greg Harrison."
‑ Melinda Ennis, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Essentially a student film that happens to star some big-name actors."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"A pileup of stylistic audio and visual gimmicks and special effects, all in need of compelling characters and a story to hook us."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"Director Greg Harrison attempts to compensate for a weak, undernourished screenplay with flashy visuals, including excessive rapid cutting and blurry shots that add nothing of value."
‑ Paul Doro, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"A fuzzy and ultimately unrewarding psychological thriller."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"It's interesting, and November does give us something to chew on. But a puzzle with no payoff isn't worth the effort."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Does not provide enough 'clues' to Sophie's emotional background to make us care whether or not she survives the trauma of 7/11."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"Wants to be smarter than it is."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"For those who like these sorts of cinematic Sudoku puzzles, "November" is a good one."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Like many dreams, November is long on imagery and short on sense."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"The lack of proper resolution to the story is more vexing than intriguing."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Best approached and appreciated as a puzzle that can be completed in various ways and a reminder that memory, like images, can be fixed, but not always trusted."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"Maybe November wanted to be the missing link between more conventional art-house films and the hallucinogenic dreams of David Lynch. It fails."
‑ John Wirt, Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
"It doesn't always succeed, and sometimes it has the egocentric obviousness of a particularly clever, grad-student thesis film, but at least Harrison is game enough to mess with your head in the first place."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"A post-Memento, mess-with-your-head thriller that thinks it's much cleverer than it is."
‑ Marc Mohan, Oregonian
