Tumbleweeds impresses with its freshly considered action and total avoidance of the stale and routine.
Features two unforgettable performances from a pair of actresses who are bound to make their mark in the movies.
One of the most magical movie moments of the year.
Beyond the leads' accomplishments, the movie isn't exceptional.
A deeply and disappointingly conventional picture masquerading as a free-spirited one.
The authenticity rings as loud and true as a gas station bell.
Given its obviousness, Tumbleweeds is still worthy of attention thanks principally to the queenly Janet McTeer.
The stagnant midsection does the hopelessly tedious atmosphere no favors...
Touching look at tough mom-daughter relationship.
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.
A mother-daughter flick that is filled with satisfying surprises and two very fine performances.
The perfect showcase for McTeer.
Although compared to Thelma & Louise in some write ups, Tumbleweeds ends up falling significantly short of that mark. Although McTeer's brief appearance as a "star" is memorable, it is a film that sticks in your mind momentarily and forgotten quickly.
It's been a while since I've seen a good movie, and this proudly stept up to the plate. I was hooked by the second scene. The material is a little familiar, but not quite cliche. The acting is so genuine, fresh, and touching that you can't help but root for these two. There's an eerie undercurrent in the scenes with the boyfriend and the film doesn't shy away from Janet McTeer's character's deeply childish flaws I teared up during the motor home scene. Kimberly Brown and Janet McTeer give perfect performances. Aww....what a feel good movie.
Great movie, and kudos to Kimberly on her role.
