A very fine domestic drama that avoids the pitfall of becoming maudlin and offers many surprising little twists along the way.

When Nicole Kidman has full control of her facial muscles she is unrivaled in her ability to play cold, distant emotionally scarred bitches. Its a marvelous performance. That said, the film itself can be so anguished that you will need counseling upon exit

a raw and complex character study that challenges our identification and sympathies at every turn

Exquisitely raw and painful, sure, but also richly humane and deeply cathartic, for David Lindsay-Abaire's Pulitzer and Tony award winning play is nothing short of a masterpiece.

John Cameron Mitchell has done an amazing job capturing the heart of these delicate characters.

It's an unsentimental, occasionally amusing insight into two people who don't know how to become normal again. A very affecting and fine debut for Kidman as producer.

It is a complicated and difficult film that is also extraordinarily sincere and honest.
