Frankly I could watch Danes, Collette, Streep, Close, Richardson, etc., as they go food shopping, which just goes to show what a bunch of great actors can do for a fairly conventional tear-jerker.

Evening is a film about regrets that doesn't say an awful lot, but somehow holds your attention with the scenes between Redgrave and Streep sure to bring a tear to your eye - or at least your mum's.

An astounding cast and high production values make this film worth seeing, even as turns into a girly melodrama.

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 ...

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

For a movie that begins on such shaky footing, Evening packs an impassioned wallop by the end.

Despite strong performances from its excellent cast, Lajos Koltai's wistful adaptation of Susan Minot's novel doesn't quite connect.

Evening's visual period splendour, its vivid characterizations and their comfortably clichéd relationships somehow draw us in and make us care.

Though the filmmaking is uneven, Evening redeems itself in its marvelous cast, which echoes the movies' themes by showcasing two real-life mother-daughter acting duos.

Evening achieves a kind of wisdom, though it's a strange and bitter wisdom. The film arrives at a pessimistic and almost nihilistic view of life as something not very important -- and then invites us to take strength and comfort in the notion.

Evening reaches for depth, at times plodding, never cloddish. The lessons about choice and loss and getting on in life have some decent heft, and there is a sunset magic in Redgrave's eyes.

Manipulative at times, but it resonates with gleaming ferocity as it unspools a story of regret, longing and resolution in two generations of women.

It's all terribly Great Gatsby, and fun to watch.

Everything about Evening seems engineered to liquefy moviegoers, specifically middle-age female moviegoers who miss their mothers. This would include me: I was a sloppy mess by the end.
