  • Magical, memorable, tender, sweet and filled with love, Lovely Still is, quite simply, absolutely lovely.

  • Don't be put off by the golden-hued, overly saccharine opening to this seemingly twee December (in both senses of the word) romance, because it hides a final quarter that packs an emotional wallop.

    June 2, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It concerns an older man, alone during the holidays, who unexpectedly finds love. It also features two strong performances from veteran actors Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn.

    October 15, 2010 | Rating: 4/5
  • There are moments during Lovely, Still when it feels like you're trapped with Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn in a kitschy musical Christmas snowglobe that someone keeps shaking.

    October 15, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The performances from Landau and Burstyn are gobsmacking, and while there's nothing truly unexpected or surprising in the story, these two keep you watching regardless.

  • The places where Fackler has problems or allows things to get a tad too sentimental are smoothed over by the unmatched skills of the effortlessly superb Burstyn and Landau.

Audience Reviews for Lovely, Still

    This is a very cute and sweet film with wonderful performances. Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn shine in this film. They have a great on screen chemistry. Elizabeth Banks and Adam Scott provide solid supporting work here. The problem that I had with the film was that it felt too much like a stage play and not a movie. Also I thought the tone of the film was not balanced. It couldn't decide if it wanted to be a romantic comedy or a melodrama. Despite that, I enjoyed the film, especially cause of Landau and Burstyn.

    Heartfelt and quirky with very likable characters. Bring out the tissue boxes.

    With a beautiful story, great camera-work, interesting characters, and absolutely incredible acting from Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn, "Lovely, Still" is a great romance film that is initially heartwarming, but ultimately turns bitter-sweet. The characters were not as compelling as they could have been, and I felt manipulated to cry, but "Lovely, Still" is lovely, still.

    Sweet Story, Great Acting, and had a Twist at the end. Don't expect a totally feel good movie like i did... it turns a little eerie, sad and strange at parts. I wouldn't really give this a pg rating either PG-13 seems more appropriate I wouldn't want my kids to watch this..
