Kings of the Evening is a warm, beguiling picture boasting an array of splendid portrayals
It moves briskly but leaves room for the stellar supporting cast to turn stock figures into appealingly shaded characters.
Well-meaning, well made and all but allergic to subtlety.
An intrusive musical score and periodic fades to black, as for commercials, make this feel as if it were made for TV, but otherwise it's exceptional, from script and performances to production design.
A sweet tale well suited to the holiday season.
The film benefits from an impressive cast. Given enough time, word of mouth could build a good-sized audience for this absorbing drama.
Depression drama has good intentions but doesn't deliver.
The actors strike home quietly in scene after scene.
An anachronistic rip-off which implies that the idea of male beauty pageants originated with African-Americans in the 1930s, instead of with Zulus in the 1990s. Is the film otherwise worthwhile? Yes, but it still weirded me out.
Simplistic period film about a man just being released after two years on a chain gang during the Great Depression, who heads home to try to start over again, only to find the town struggling through hard economic times. While staying at a rundown boarding house, he makes new friends, who try to make life better through weekly competitions at a local dance hall. Cloying, but not without its charms. It's effortless likable, but ultimately direct to DVD fare.
