At the center of the film is one of the year's best performances -- that of British actress Janet McTeer.

This smart, hardscrabble, very likable film has a heart and spirit all its own.

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.

Tumbleweeds is a slender novella of a film, but it's closely observed and honestly presented.

Beyond the leads' accomplishments, the movie isn't exceptional.
