Strong supporting actors ... give performances that serve to make their co-stars or the material look worse.

Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle

The acting surprise in this odd and interesting film is Anne Heche, who suppresses her sexy, acerbic essence and completely slips into the skin of Auggie's pen pal.

TV Guide

Tabak's directing debut is carefully plotted, well acted and surprisingly free of cheap thrills.

Elvis Mitchell
New York Times

Begins to feel like a coffeehouse conversation about a movie that's all about meanings and motif rather than substance and characters.

Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times

Has the earmarks of a sleeper: an unusual and involving premise persuasively and fully realized.

Goldblum gives a satisfying performance as a man desperate to escape his mundane, privileged life.

Only the latest feature to suck the air out of Destiny, moviedom's current bogeyman.
