Um belo elenco em uma fantasia açucaradamente otimista que, criada pelo diretor-roteirista Bezucha, é um sonho de respeito de tolerância. E, por isso mesmo, agradável de assistir.
| Original Score: 4/5

Big Eden focuses on relationships and creates a feel good fable that you won't find in ordinary Montana life.

In an age when self-acceptance and taking a hold of one's destiny is more relevant than ever, Big Eden may be the right inspirational movie for our evolving times.

Surely one of the most genuinely sweet-natured movies around.

Personally, I found it irresistible -- not great, but definitely irresistible -- and I certainly enjoyed the company of these caring, enlightened people.

Much here is charming, if not exactly plausible.

...a funny coming-of-age romantic romp set in the Montana timberwoods, a thousand miles from nowhere.... A sure fire audience pleaser.

This may be a date movie with enough quiet charm to appeal to anybody, straight, gay or, like Dean, undecided.

Big Eden has a simple enough plot, but first-time writer-director Thomas Bezucha has endowed it with the twinkly winsomeness of a fairy tale.

A heart-affecting gay romantic drama that unabashedly celebrates community as the ideal milieu for bringing out the best in people.

This fairy tale wraps up the audience without missing the drama of small town politics.

In its gentle, heartwarming, decidedly unrealistic way, it's a refreshing alternative to hipper-than-thou moviemaking.

Yet, for all the film's slow spots, it's impossible not to be moved by Henry and Pike's blossoming romance, thanks especially to Gross and Schweig's charming lead performances.
