This dreary independent drama is essentially an art-world soap opera, but without the melodramatic verve that makes some soap operas interesting.

The direction is decent, and the film is handsome. But it's finally frustrating, enigmatic in a way that suggests emptiness more than mystery.

Full of humor and humanity, Nobody Walks is an emotionally complex, acutely observed and sensual film and one of the best at Sundance this year.

Laramie Movie Scope

Olivia Thirlby's performance is the best reason to catch this film. She shines here. She kind of reminds me of Anne Hathaway here. I would love to see her… More

Rather self-indulgent, "Nobody Walks" hints at thoughtful performances and poetic revelations but never quite delivers. Olivia Thirlby is gorgeous… More
