Movie Reviews

  • though the film eventually caves to sentiment and stereotype, its alert performances and muted rhythms offer much to enjoy in the interim
    by Jeannette Catsoulis [NPR ]
  • the rigidly oriented story is adorned with lively, engaging, understated performances
    by Richard Brody [New Yorker ]
  • the actors have written before ... but they have something to say rather than a story to tell, and the agenda ends up defusing the drama. Van Sant just has a place he wants to visit. He makes us want to visit it, too
    by Ty Burr [Boston Globe ]
  • offers no wiggle room, no ambiguities, eccentricities or human contradictions to its characters; they are placards with famous faces
    by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine ]
  • although too dramatically underpowered to achieve more than modest commercial impact, this well-acted, minor-key passion project for star-producer-scribe Matt Damon could parlay heated op-ed coverage into a respectable arthouse showing
    by Justin Chang [Variety ]
  • actually a potent and powerful look at how the stressed economy is stressing farm communities across America
    3 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • a sympathetic but dramatically choppy look at a small town beset by an environmental choice
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a drama both timely in subject matter and fantastically entertaining
    Review rate : A- by Amanda Mae Meyncke [ ]
