  • The main recommendation here is another nuanced and affecting performance from JK Simmons, one of the best character actors in contemporary American cinema.

    March 29, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Deftly balancing humor and grief, "The Bachelors" is fueled by wonderfully human performances and fully realized characters.

    October 19, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Voelker excels at guiding the cast through some complicated emotional territory and maintains strong arcs for each of the principal characters.

    October 18, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A perfect example of those light American indie dramas that fancy themselves as sophisticated, but in fact have far less value than a good blockbuster.

    April 2, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • There's a corny metaphor about cross-country running and the catharsis that comes from pushing through the pain of loss, but strong central performances mean that this is still moving stuff.
