Consensus: Though unrealistic, Big Eden has all the charm and sweetness of a fairy tale.

Liam Lacey

Too concerned with being quirky and endearing and soon runs out of local charm.

Gross doesn't have the spark of a star, and most everyone else seems to hail straight from central casting.

Pablo Villaça
Cinema em Cena

Um belo elenco em uma fantasia açucaradamente otimista que, criada pelo diretor-roteirista Bezucha, é um sonho de respeito de tolerância. E, por isso mesmo, agradável de assistir.

Other than this gay-friendly gimmick, Bezucha's plot is as hoary as they come.

Susan Walker
Toronto Star

It is annoyingly preposterous, corny where it could be comedic, sappy where it could be uplifting.

Lackluster at 24 frames per second, Writer/Director Thomas Bezucha's debut film, "Big Eden" is another love story about falling in love with the wrong guy, all the while not realizing the right guy is in love with you.

Rita Kempley
Washington Post

Echoes the mellow sensibilities of the TV series Northern Exposure.

Jay Boyar
Orlando Sentinel

A story about characters who are so extremely closeted that their deepest feelings often remain a secret even to the audience.

John A. Nesbit
Old School Reviews

Big Eden focuses on relationships and creates a feel good fable that you won't find in ordinary Montana life.
