For every such moment there's a sappy montage or overt visual reference to Rossellini to cheapen the effect.
[A] familiarly snoozy romantic drama.
Though the film plays like late-era Woody Allen - not necessarily a good thing - and Goldberg's rambunctiousness is more annoying than liberating, there's a serious depth of feeling here.
The marital crisis at the movie's heart has lost its allegorical weight. Jane and Leonard are just another unhappy couple with problems that have nothing to do with the direction of Western civilization.
"And While We Were Here" is just good enough to pique your curiosity, but never quite good enough to captivate.
It's to Coiro's credit that no one emerges as a villain - and that, however painful, on the other side lies hope.
A sad routine of hurtful behavior in a movie that never expresses its complicated point of view in a satisfying manner, leaving behind unanswered questions, dim characters, and contemptible actions.
Imagine a boring, gender-swapped, totally arty and pretentious version of the travelogue-mini-film-within-a-film focusing on Kip Pardue's character from The Rules of Attraction, except strung out on Benadryl instead of methamphetamine.
The scenery is more captivating than the drama.
Its depiction of womanhood, particularly as it does and does not relate to the romantic male counterpart, establishes Coiro's presence as a new, potent voice in filmmaking.
This elegant and beautifully staged Italy-set drama offers Kate Bosworth the perfect acting vehicle, playing a beautiful but emotionally troubled young woman who seeks to escape the mundanity of her marriage while on a trip to the Amalfi coast.
An unhappily married American woman's affair in Italy sets her on a new course in her life.
