  • A sweet tale with a smart storytelling device and charming performers, but not much more beyond the cute.

  • Despite winning performances, something about this wispy two-hander just doesn't sit right.

  • LeSchander shows a lot of strength in her debut feature, but because of the unchanging setting, The Park Bench could have perhaps been better if it had been situated on a stage rather than onscreen.

  • The Park Bench has some moments of genuine emotion, and the falling-in-love-over-literature idea is a solid one. But it never attempts to be more than a product of its genre, and in that way, The Park Bench is too limited for its own good.
