Script abuse gives film a black eye

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...

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.

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.

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.
