Cohen, who has been in the diamond business, has directed with a sure, non-wasteful hand and with touching empathy for both men.

After watching [Forster's] subtle, touching performance in this movie, you'll think that being over 50 is just about the coolest thing in the world.

Genuine, amusing and, best of all, humanly scaled and humanely oriented.
