The film ably captures the painful messiness of seemingly simple lives.

Ms. O'Neal has her moments, but the decision to portray her as a raving maniac yields diminishing returns.

Most of what Stevens has concocted here is hard to take.

December 13, 2012

Connie Stevens' directorial debut blends family drama with psychological thriller to ultimately uneven effect.

Sherilyn Connelly

Top Critic
December 12, 2012

The film packs in more characters, subplots, and moments of nostalgic detail than it can gracefully accommodate, and the pacing often feels rushed.

Nick McCarthy
Slant Magazine
December 12, 2012

This cumbersome and graceless 1950s-set period drama possesses the reactionary life insights and amateurish production values of a Lifetime soap.
