No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
To say it is bleak is an understatement. But it will make a lot of people reassess their marriages and decide that, in comparison, they're not so bad after all.
Walsh and Kelly are the embodiment of domestic despair, fumbling to find their way back into the light.
This portrait of an imploding marriage is remarkable for every reason that counts in a good film.
An Irish indie that is well-observed and well-acted -- but ultimately, not much more exciting than the love lives of its lead characters.
The sweet sadness of it rises through the banter like a mist. It's something to take home with you.
Declan Reck has made a character-driven drama that plays with stereotpyical elements of marriage movies like infidelity and ennui but makes them feel completely genuine.
Eden is a sad, nicely observed study of a decade-old marriage that, for the most part, is over.
The kind of small movie that's all too easy to overlook, but even easier to like once you've seen it.
Despite the fine performances, it might have been a better idea just to leave this one to the theatre where it was probably better suited.
like channeling Mike Leigh or John Cassavetes in bringing this marital drama to the screen.
Recks has a talent for getting the feel of an entire community...but the story of a marriage in crisis goes off the rails in its final act.
Seemingly in an effort to make up for O'Brien's anemic script, Recks energizes the slow-moving tale with nonstop distracting camerawork.
