Late Bloomers Reviews

Late Bloomers has its moments but mostly feels like an uncomfortable romp into old age.

It offers shallow pleasures and the satisfaction of seeing two actors in performances better than the film deserves.

I'm not sure the social prejudices Gavras tries to mine for laughs here quite exist anymore.

It's a delight to see William Hurt and Isabella Rossellini given an age-appropriate showcase that doesn't involve heavy artillery.

In a performance that is much deeper than the rest of the movie, Mr. Hurt allows Adam's anger and fear to leak out of his electric blue eyes, which are frequently on the brink of tears.

Ultimately, it's not distinctive enough to draw viewers who haven't given much thought to aging. But that still leaves a substantial audience for the film's gentle laughs and modest insights.

"Late Bloomers" could have been a much better movie, if only director and co-writer Julie Gavras were as sensible as her actors.

Late Bloomers is at its best when it's being breezy and simply taking pleasure in its lead actors, who turn in strong performances in spite of certain clunky character developments.

A comedy about the changes and the challenges faced by a couple entering the far country of old age.

Extra discredit to the embarrassingly jaunty score by Sodi Marciszewer, which should be taken behind the recording studio and shot.

[Rossellini] is radiant in a profoundly ordinary and believable way, as always, and stirs up generational pathos all by herself.

While the world could certainly use more films about characters entering their sunset years, a solution as toothless and saggy as Julie Gavras' Late Bloomers does little to help the cause.

Late Bloomers is a first rate rom-com about first world problems, with two great veteran actors delivering on a witty and poignant script.

Getting old ain't fun in this dreary comedy drama.
