Wells doesn't just focus on her laugh-out-loud funny performance or insightful script: she displays a real eye for the cinematic with shot-on-film visuals that elevate her movie and lavish attention on its Texas setting.

In addition to being terribly funny, Mr. Roosevelt feels totally now.

here's no attempt to invent the wheel here; if anything, Wells' film is a square peg in a round hole.

It's a reminder that the 21st century is going to be full of coming-of-age films about 30-year-olds, and it's compelling evidence that that might be alright.

A bitter yet affectionate comedy that delights in awkward situations, Mr Roosevelt is limited in its ambition but, as a result, gives this new writer/director room to focus on what she knows she can do well.

Ms. Wells is 10 times funnier and smarter than Louis CK. Her film is a reminder of what a crime sexism is. It not only harms women, it prevents the real cream from rising to the surface.

Creatives have stories to tell. This is Nol Wells' story to tell. And good storytelling like Mr. Roosevelt is why we watch independent films. It's a good story and a good start for Wells.

Quirky, funnier than any movie about mourning a dead cat ought to be.

Modest but funny, it makes a fine calling card for a performer deserving of bigger things.

[Nicole] Wells wears a look of consternation with a 50/50 chance she's about to bite someone's head off or burst into tears.

Nothing here, from the premise to the plotting to the basic tone, is particularly novel, but the entire affair has a distinctive personality.

A very effective story that works as a love letter to both a life and a city in transition.
