It is intended for an audience that is willing to take a journey without knowing the destination.

Propelled by a rangy, superbly colorful performance by Mira Sorvino, the film grabs hold of the viewer from the jump and snowballs toward a deftly moving and concise third act.

A half-sketched tale of familial floundering, Union Square is a suffocating and pantomimed drama that makes an especially unconvincing and headlong dive into sentimentality in its finale.

The kind of character-driven movie about whacked-out characters we need more of (the characters and the movies).

Mira Sorvino is very good -- too good -- at playing a very annoying person in Nancy Savoca's Union Square.

The film was so so. It reminded me of two films, Pieces of April and In Her Shoes. Those films were better than this one. The film had the same look and style… More
