A poetic, powerful work.

All Gordon Green can manage are...dreamy images, blunt-edged characters and dialogue, splattered like so-much Cheese Whiz over a shapeless mess of a pseudo-poetic narrative.

Love can be a good thing. It can just as easily be horrible. David Gordon Green's poetic All the Real Girls captures both senses of love - and beautifully to boot.

Captures the almost narcotic sensation of new love...

Obriga o público a passar duas horas ao lado de pessoas absolutamente desinteressantes.

The performances are convincing, and sufficiently nuanced to elevate the characters beyond mere cliché.

Zooey Deschanel, in her first starring role, barely saves this film from the murky bogs of independent dreck.

"All the Real Girls" captures young love as well as any movie ever has.

Its sensibility is almost anachronistic; I'm not sure there's a cynical moment in its 108-minute running time.

There are several moments so sublime, so ineffably and serenely beautiful, that you might be convinced that this sort of relationship could only happen in a dream.

A lot of the dialogue is funny and dumb and sometimes insightful, but there are also moments when something rings so false it feels you're watching an artfully directed episode of Dawson's Creek.

The story takes place in the real world, but the real world as it feels when you're in love or when you watch a great film like, say, this one.

A borderline- unwatchable excursion into rural romance.

Undisciplined, unfocused, overimprovised and unevenly acted.

an extraordinary ode to the power of first love and its ability to redeem, even when it involves heartbreak that, in retrospect, was inevitable
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

The characters just sit there and talk, and you start to feel you're trapped not at a movie but in a tiny diner somewhere, eavesdropping on a lot of uninteresting conversations.

...it is difficult to criticize any movie that can sound the human heart so sure and well.

We are unmistakably in the presence of a love story, enriched and imbued with local color [yet] I could feel myself straining to love a film that in actuality I merely liked.

One of those movies you're sure you're supposed to like, and then you wind up not liking it so much.

By dismissing the cliches of movie romance, "All the Real Girls" comes closer than most movies can to showing a couple falling in love.
