Critic Reviews for Union Square
It is intended for an audience that is willing to take a journey without knowing the destination.
The kind of character-driven movie about whacked-out characters we need more of (the characters and the movies).
Mira Sorvino is very good -- too good -- at playing a very annoying person in Nancy Savoca's Union Square.
Propelled by a rangy, superbly colorful performance by Mira Sorvino, the film grabs hold of the viewer from the jump and snowballs toward a deftly moving and concise third act.
It doesn't pretend to be anything more than it is - a slice-o'-life domestic drama/dark comedy of manners savvy about its limits and sufficiently disciplined to keep its convolutions to a credible, impactful minimum.
Audience Reviews for Union Square
Character driven drama with each actress up to the task.....the ending rang alittle hollow with all the surpressed anger that was built up between the two but overall not bad.
UCH!! Terrible for so many reasons. dribble, dribble, cliche, melo dramatic, tedious. I want my time back.
The film was so so. It reminded me of two films, Pieces of April and In Her Shoes. Those films were better than this one. The film had the same look and style that Pieces of April did. Mira Sorvino's character reminded me of Cameron Diaz's character in, In Her Shoes. While, Tammy Blanchard's character reminded me of Toni Collete's character in, In Her Shoes. I was surprised by the short running time of this movie. The pacing is also a little off. At times, the film feels like a stage play. The best part of the film are the performances. Mira Sorvino does a great job here. I would love to see her in more roles. Tammy Blanchard is good here too. Both her and Sorvino have a great on screen chemistry as sisters. Michael Rispoli and Patti LuPone are good in their supporting roles. On a personal note, Union Square is one of my favorite hangouts in NYC. I loved seeing it on the big screen in this movie.
