Critic Reviews for Small, Beautifully Moving Parts
There's a big difference between commenting on the zeitgeist and simply acknowledging it, as this featherweight independent comedy demonstrates.
This is a small film and knows exactly how to be a small film. Like many New Yorker short stories, its purpose is to strike a particular note and allow it to reverberate.
Even at a lean 73 minutes, this flimsy road movie feels at least 43 minutes too long.
Small, Beautifully Moving Parts isn't always completely elegant about getting its point across, but its imperfections are only human - a quality, as Sarah eventually realizes, that can have its own appeal.
Highly agreeable, funny and bright study of a pregnant woman all at sea in a world where wireless options seem to outweigh human ones in her life.
An intimate and well-acted drama about the technological tools in our lives and the quest of a young pregnant woman to reconcile with her long estranged mother.
