Script abuse gives film a black eye
| Original Score: 1.5/5
A lovely surprise -- it's endearing rather than sticky-sweet; truly charming rather than forced; and is enriched by its two leading performances as well as several memorable supporting turns.
Filmmaker Nathan Adloff obviously sees the audience as capable enough of handling a story without hand-holding...
| Original Score: 4/5
Blessed with natural performances and brisk pacing, this unusual little movie would like us to know just one thing: Passion is fine, but a pal is priceless.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
[A] moving, engagingly low-key curio.
Narrative conflicts are introduced and swatted away in favor of an amiable sentimentality, two nice people being nice to each other.
Nathan Adloff's Nate & Margaret is an endearing, hopeful, and quietly radical film.
| Original Score: 3/4
Director-cowriter Nathan Adloff displays real sensitivity toward the central characters, yet he hasn't crafted a story in which his observations might carry any weight.
Here is a sweet, delicate story about friendship.
