This and other movies like it seem to say love is complicated and can cause much misery, but that never strikes me as insightful.

November 9, 2003
Fittingly probing, sensual, mysterious and raw. Byler's exposition is vastly taut, revealing, and firmly perceptive. Charlotte Sometimes radiates with invigorating absorption

'Charlotte Sometimes' elicits no more than restlessness.

The film's nervous reticence makes it both precious and a little unwieldy, like a matchstick palace built on a subway platform.

August 29, 2003
An erotic mystery of sorts, the film works because it's laconic rather than talky and its actors are all up for the material.
August 27, 2003
It features plenty of hushed moments that suggest the presence of nuances that never really emerge from its murky tone.

August 21, 2003
A smartly made, hedonistic spectacle of alluring, nubile characters, sun-warmed narcissism and breathtaking color.
August 8, 2003
A romantic but nevertheless clear-eyed look at the things we do for love.

It's a hushed work of restrained emotions, elliptical storytelling and spare dialogue, peopled with smart, authentic characters who have drawn you into their lives before you know it.
