All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Sensational performances. A Romantic, somewhat humourous tale.

September 18, 2002
Moviehole

A drama that probes the prejudices and divisiveness of a small community.

Spirituality and Practice

A snail-paced, airless bore.

Film Journal International

Such a glorified workshop may have its rewards for the actors, but it leaves audiences with a booby prize.

Audience Reviews for Reach the Rock

½

Partially funny in the upper half. Were they trying to make Alessandro Nivola the 2nd Jimmy Dean then? Well, not really.

I really liked this film, it's well written, very amusing as well as touching. It has a good feel for small town life, the characters are quite well developed and Alessandro Nivola is excellent in the lead role. Great story, thoroughly enjoyable.
