Audience Reviews for Avalon

  • Sep 05, 2014
    Sweet. Realistic. A bit slow, but rich in character and well-acted.
    Dannielle A Super Reviewer

    An insular Jewish immigrant family adjusts to American life in 1950s Baltimore. In the sub-genre of film that is "immigrants adjust to American life," a genre that In America dominates, Avalon is not bad. Its elements of magical realism ring false and over-bearing, but the characters are sharply constructed and often interesting. Strong performances by Armin Mueller-Stahl (has he ever given a bad performance) and Aidan Quinn (who has given plenty of bad performances) carry the film despite circular plotlines about who cuts the turkey and when. Overall, this film is good, but it's nothing to write back to the Motherland about.
