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

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

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.

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

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.
