It's not the glacial pace that fatigues, but a lack of connection with the characters.

Byler doesn't rush his storytelling; this is a deliberately paced, thoughtful meditation on racial issues and relationships ...

I'm convinced that Byler is a talent to watch.

Fine, understated performances and the self-assured way that Byler lets the film find its own rhythms, rather than setting into some template, result in a mature film of subtle complexity.

A collection of scenes in search of a coherent story, the film's characters don't develop, and plot lines fail to coalesce by the movie's conclusion.

You don't have to be Asian-American to understand the universal longing for love and self-acceptance.

[Director Eric] Byler deals with characters who have lived their years, learned from them, and try to apply their values to their lives. Their romances are not heedless but wary, and involve a lot of negotiation.

This diverting, occasionally wry seriocomedy ultimately doesn't add up to a satisfying whole.

Byler was just warming up with Charlotte Sometimes and somewhere deep down not only gets people - but how filmmaking can translate to those who don't.
