A great film. Considers genuine personalities and extreme feelings, and lingers in the mind, holding some kind of spell over us long after it has ended.

Sadness engulfs the people in this provocative drama like a dense fog, leaving them with little sense of direction or purpose except trying to get by each day. Stunning performances!

In its deliberate pacing and its jolting turns, the movie is reminiscent of director Casi Lemmons' "Eve's Bayou," another Southern tale swamped in moodiness.

A Última Ceia mergulha sem reservas no triste universo de seus protagonistas, retratando-os de forma honesta e, justamente por isso, despertando reações ambíguas na platéia.

Halle Berry, of all people, gives one of the year's strongest performances

Estupenda muestra de lo que se puede lograr con una historia que muestre a las personas como lo que son: seres humanos en busca de su realización y su lugar en la vida.

An intense drama that trusts its characters and lets them move freely amongst themselves and react honestly to the situations in which life places them.

[Marc Foster] knows that careful, quiet dialogue, and long, silent pauses speak louder than lengthy emotional summaries.

Hay escenas duras, y hay detalles de guión que no convencerán si son quisquillosos, pero las actuaciones pagan con creces todos los fallos y valen el pago del boleto.

An emotionally devastating movie.

This is pure adult drama, about issues that are deep as life itself.

While Billy Bob transforms terrifically from a bigot to a noble man in a biracial relationship, Halle is just plain brilliant as a poor and exhausted woman who finally reaches her breaking point.

A textbook example of fearless filmmaking, exhibiting a brand of gritty realism that's hard to watch but impossible to ignore.

The feel bad movie of the winter.

Forster is confident enough in his script and actors, as well he should be, and is content to let them shine.
