A soul-satisfying film about one young woman's rite of initiation into adulthood.
February 12, 2001
Although well cast and acted, the movie doesn't amount to much. Still, it is an enjoyable enough diversion.

Part beautifully shot European travelogue and part moving exploration of the darker side of the hippie era's rabid idealism.

This cinematic big top is worth the price of admission.

Adam Brooks' film is a total miss, both as a potentially intriguing look into the tumultuous politics of the 1960s and 1970s and as a coming of age of a girl obsessed with her sister's mysterious death

Whenever Brooks hits a stride, the mystery element takes over, and that crudely formed aspect of the film overwhelms what is fully functional.

Cameron Diaz and Christopher Eccleston? Good. Jordana Brewster? Actorly indication, stilted line readings and nostril-flaring petulance. The result? A bad day at the Circus.
