Subtle in its use of cause and effect, Lawless Heart is a light-hearted study of relationships and regret, of last chances and lessons in love.

A modern and mature story about love and loving, a film as intelligent as it is charming.

Like so many British movies, it seems made for actors who make what they humanly can of it, their expertise meshing.

Never shouts out its emotional explorations. Instead, it employs a soft, secure voice, and the viewer is lulled even more by the authentic, unadorned performances of a strong ensemble.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

There is a real honesty to this British comedy-drama that is appealing, and which also makes its soap-opera plot a bit easier to swallow.

Complex but never confusing -- thanks to the three-act structure, which replays the same moments from different perspectives.

The writing-directing pair of Neil Hunter and Tom Hunsinger create a fairly seamless patchwork, although the novelty starts to wear thin by the third layer.

As it stands, Tim's story rescues the movie, but barely.
