The stagnant midsection does the hopelessly tedious atmosphere no favors...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 1, 2011
Touching look at tough mom-daughter relationship.

January 9, 2007
A keenly observed chronicle of a single mother at the crossroads of self-realization, Gavin O'Connor's debut features a wonderful, Oscar-caliber performance from British Janet McTeer.
Full Review | Original Score: B
March 4, 2002
A mother-daughter flick that is filled with satisfying surprises and two very fine performances.
January 1, 2000
A deeply and disappointingly conventional picture masquerading as a free-spirited one.
January 1, 2000
The characters have been intriguing to know and easy to care about.

January 1, 2000
At the center of the film is one of the year's best performances -- that of British actress Janet McTeer.
January 1, 2000
A slight but likable movie.
January 1, 2000
McTeer shines in her film debut, bringing to the screen a naturalness not seen in a long time.
January 1, 2000
There is something so poignant and generous and sad in that dilemma that women all over may watch McTeer's performance and glimpse an essential truth in it.

The slim story didn't hold my interest.

January 1, 2000
The acting is excellent all around.
January 1, 2000
Among the many attractive elements of Tumbleweeds is the film's lack of stereotype and obvious event.
January 1, 2000
An enjoyable and moderately moving picture.
January 1, 2000
Tumbleweeds is a slender novella of a film, but it's closely observed and honestly presented.
January 1, 2000
The film moves with the same breakneck vitality as its star McTeer.
January 1, 2000
Tumbleweeds is most worthwhile for its mother-daughter scenes, which ring truer than those in Anywhere but Here.

January 1, 2000
Giving two of the year's best performances, (McTeer and Brown) have astonishing authenticity and naturalness, which never seems like acting.
January 1, 2000
The people we meet in the course of this only too common American odyssey are not always sympathetic, but they are invariably three-dimensional.
January 1, 2000
Tumbleweeds is far from a slick Hollywood-style production. It's not encumbered, for one thing, by star power. There's no list of past hits, Oscar bids, parts gone wrong.
