Critical Reception

“Under Eastwood’s painstakingly stripped-down direction — his filmmaking has become the cinematic equivalent of Hemingway’s spare though precise prose — the story emerges as that rarest of birds, an uplifting tragedy.” – The Hollywood Reporter – Kirk Honeycutt

“If we can watch this picture at all, it is because this universally admired person (Eastwood) is in it.” – The New Republic – Stanley Kauffmann
