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.

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.
