All Critics (21) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (4)

  • It's a story of contained chaos, quietly observed - one that catches fire more in retrospect than in the viewing.

  • Porterfield's film doesn't offer much in the way of plot, but the ways the characters bounce off one another in small spaces are precisely observed, and the actors have a lot of soul ...

    May 9, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Unfolds like a music album, with emotive songs supplying information that doesn't need repeating in the lean screenplay, which the director co-wrote with Amy Belk.

    May 8, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The couple, both musicians, are in the midst of a bitter breakup, and Porterfield frequently trains the camera on one or the other as each performs his melancholy tunes; this stops the narrative dead in its tracks.

    November 7, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The visual style of third-time director Matthew Porterfield ("Putty Hill," "Hamilton") is emphatically lyrical, beginning with a widescreen shot of a Maryland Ferris wheel that suggests a celebration of Americana.

    October 24, 2013 | Rating: 3/4
  • Nuanced performances by the non-professional cast and a haunting soundtrack help fill in the deliberate narrative gaps.
