Critical Reception

“This is an old-fashioned movie done with wit, grace, smarts and style. [19 March 1999, Friday, p.A]” – Chicago Tribune – Michael Wilmington

“It’s a gritty story made in the director’s more elegiacal mode, a confusion of style and content that is not in the film’s best interests.” – Los Angeles Times – Kenneth Turan
