Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film might succeed as a travelogue were it not for writer-director Majmudar's treacly narration."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"A drama so undercooked and overbaked that only fans of Harlequin romance novels could possibly clutch it to their heaving bosoms."
‑ Mark Keizer, Boxoffice Magazine
"Unfortunately, not only Grace, but every major character in Majmudar's script exists to embody an idea rather than a person or personality, each uttering their point of view with an absolute, repetitive conviction that's the death of interesting drama."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"Visually beautiful but sleepy."
‑ John Coulbourn, Jam! Movies
