The film is a fine example of what works within the pages of a book doesn't necessarily work onscreen, particularly when the book in question is as dense as Minot's, and apparently as fragile.

It's quite an achievement to get such a group of esteemed actresses together for something of such little consequence.

While overall EVENING doesn't quite reach the heights it should, it is well worth while, if for no other reason than to see a bevy of marvelous actresses ...

This is a film full of meaningful aspirations and although it tries to convince us in the end that there is no such thing as a mistake, I can't help feeling that the film is an opportunity missed.

The cinematic equivalent of repeated punches to the kidneys.

Bittersweet and deeply, achingly romantic, this perfect, perfect film... enfolds regrets and memories and love and hope in [a] snug embrace...

The acting, by any measure, is superb.

The movie plays out slowly, but it's not an action movie, so that's okay. It's all about emotions with deep connections between the characters.

It's a good-intentioned but bland "Evening" out.

The performances are terrific, but they are hampered by an overly convoluted script that takes a very simple concept and complicates it with a back-and-forth temporal flow and an overabundance of characters and relationships.

It holds attention, offers admirable performances, and engenders emotional involvement as few recent movies have.

There's a better movie somewhere inside this saccharine weepy that telegraphs its melodramatics with shameless glee.

Even as I admired most of the performances -- and I do stress most of them -- I found myself searching in vain for one character to care about.

Evening is not without interest. The problem is that most of the interest stems from the inevitable fascination generated by watching a slow-motion train wreck.

That's not to say that Evening is a turkey, but rather a delicate canary that never really finds its voice.

features Acting with a capital "A," pulled off by serious thespians putting years of training to the test.

As a fan of Claire Danes, Patrick Wilson, and Hungarian cinematographers and directors, I went into Evening with much enthusiasm. I left the theatre feeling anything but enthused.

Not see Evening? It's like having to say no to a Jane Austen adaptation.

It suffocates in all its blue-blooded proprieties and cloying sentimentalities.
