A Price Above Rubies Reviews

Christopher Lloyd
Sarasota Herald-Tribune

A Price Above Rubies isn't a particularly good movie, though Zellweger shines in a tough, gritty role that foreshadowed her more serious acting ambitions.

Yakin's argument is presented with such blind rage and fury that his little film goes from sensitive and perceptive to sensational and scandal-mongering very quickly

Combustible Celluloid

Yakin dares to not only enter that neighborhood, but to find beauty and sadness in it, rather than something alien or foreign.

Thanks to Boaz (Fresh) Yorkin, we now have Bye, Bye, Hasid or better yet Escape from the Tefillin.

Spirituality and Practice

Writer and director Boaz Yakin has fashioned a beguiling drama about the deep yearning we all have to express our heart's desire. The film's title is from Proverbs 31:10.

Renee Zellweger, previously best known as the sweet mom from 'Jerry Maguire,' delivers a quietly stunning performance in the lead.

Internet Reviews

With its coldly antiseptic tone, the movie seems more interested in preaching awkwardly to the audience that inviting it in.

Christian Science Monitor

A Price Above Rubies would have more impact if filmmaker Boaz Yakin didn't allow its energy level to sag in several scenes, and if he avoided some lapses into Hollywood-style sensationalism.

Just about everything in writer-director Boaz Yakin's film rings false.

Film Journal International

Yakin cleverly introduces elements of magic realism in an otherwise starkly real, modern allegory.
