| Original Score: C
Its thematic scope stays rather small, and the final third of the movie seems muted and flat.
A sweet little fable, a bit shy on substance but quite charming in the telling.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
An unapologetically small but wholly original movie, warm-hearted but not precious, and possessed of a gently wacky sensibility.
| Original Score: 4/5
Though employing no surreal devices and remaining within a realistic convention, Krueger takes the story of two young sisters on their own and somehow makes it seem unreal, strange, outside time.
| Original Score: 2/4
It's the kind of story that leaves viewers with a warm glow.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
With its carefully-modulated combination of light comedy and drama, the film casts a gentle spell.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
It is a slight enterprise, not always expert in its construction, but it is sweet without being cloying, and it is sentimental in beneficial ways.
One of the pleasures of Manny & Lo is the way that it reveals its characters in sudden, unexpected, defining acts.
The story settles into a fairly routine feminist fable.
