Langella is superb, and Starting Out in the Evening is a classy film... but it could have used a little less circumspection, a little more juice.

We're pretty much left waiting in this drifting melodrama about living the artistic life in New York and the ambition it takes to do that.

The Moving Picture Show

It's an intimate drama -- a chamber piece, really -- that deals intelligently with intriguing themes and provocative ideas regarding the ambiguous motives and borrowed-from-life material that fuel the creative process.

It's a thinking person's movie in the best sense of the phrase.

In the end, Langella lays his character bare before us but leaves his dignity intact.

Window to the Movies

Its academic approach, which allows its characters to be themselves and their relationships to crinkle and fold within each other to no obvious end, shows both strength and vulnerability.

[Langella's] finely shaded performance is the main reason to check out [this] gently affecting film that portrays the fragility of life, love and art with sympathy and taste.

It's about as quiet as a film can get. But for those in search of for nuance, intelligence and fine acting, this is a must-see.

Wagner's penetrating narrative is poetically stimulating in its smart approach to its dialogue-driven excellence and standout performances.

Starting Out in the Evening boasts exquisite performances by Langella and Taylor, and that may provide reward enough for most filmgoers.

Among the CGI monsterfests of the holiday film season, this quiet, humorous drama of oppositional wills from different generations coming to terms with each other is one of the miracles of the season.

Starting Out is a movie for savoring, not one whose flavor explodes on your palate, but its minor-key attractions are substantial.

Intimate and beautifully acted, it feels more like a satisfying play than a movie (that's not a criticism, by the way).

Mick LaSalle

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Starting Out in the Evening has the feeling of a film in which the actors, left to direct themselves, played into their own self-indulgent instincts, and the only one who resisted was the old pro who knew better.
