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.

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

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.

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.
