Formally impressive but tedious.

In place of Before Sunrise's verbal fireworks, the aptly named Quiet City offers something more like linguistic sparklers -- modest, yes, but charming all the same.

Although the movie is hardly more ambitious than its young protagonists, there's a lot of value in a lazy day. Quiet City knows where to find it.

A talkfest like this is ripe for disaster, but Quiet City succeeds thanks to its two leads, Erin Fisher as Jamie and Cris Lankenau as Charlie. They're attractive and likable, and they hold our interest throughout.

Proof positive that life's mundanities are even more tedious projected onto a movie screen.

A contemplative widescreen experience that views its landscape -- the borderline-industrial hipster neighborhoods of Brooklyn, N.Y. -- with painterly patience.

Evokes a memorable aesthetic to surround its minor-key maybe-romance.

Tender and sad, it is a fully realized work of mumblecore poetry.

Quiet City often attains a floating, poetic buoyancy that pulls a fast one on gravity.
