Kelly & Cal Reviews

October 2, 2014
The movie turns a little soapy as it tries to locate a satisfying ending, and there are too many self-conscious statements of life's little lessons, yet the passion remains.
September 26, 2014
It's difficult to be fully invested in the Big Emotional Developments of the final act.
September 25, 2014
There are complex situations, well-acted characters and a central relationship that feels authentic and mature - and yet it's missing some element to bring it fully into focus.

Juliette Lewis and newcomer Jonny Weston bring terrific sensitivity to their roles.
September 12, 2014
A sly satire that's sexy, touching, and funny, if seriously flawed.
September 11, 2014
An offbeat drama with a pervasive sense of unease. Compelling, if slightly inconclusive.
September 5, 2014
The film is mostly proof that changing the gender and details in a premise doesn't do much good if the presentation is conventional in nearly every other way.
September 5, 2014
Nothing too shocking happens, nor does the film end in some completely unpredictable way. It's a modest pleasure.
September 4, 2014
The performances of Ms. Lewis and Mr. Weston crackle with authenticity. Like a good punk-rock song, this bracingly honest, tough-minded vignette stays true to itself.
September 4, 2014
This uneven directorial debut from Jen McGowan is notable mostly for a nicely understated turn from Juliette Lewis.
September 3, 2014
Lewis is a star in her prime, and more smart directors should put her to work.
September 3, 2014
The film drifts into boilerplate paces.
September 2, 2014
Assured ...
September 2, 2014
The chemistry between Lewis and Weston couldn't be more appealing throughout, as their distinct energies perfectly complement the characters and each other.
September 2, 2014
It's a film that takes its characters and their crises seriously, allowing them to fully explore their situation before providing them (and the audience) a genuine roadmap for finding their way through.
September 1, 2014
A romantic drama complicated by a stroller and a wheelchair, and its first mistake is in assuming some kind of equity between the two vehicles.
