Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
The marital crisis at the movie's heart has lost its allegorical weight. Jane and Leonard are just another unhappy couple with problems that have nothing to do with the direction of Western civilization.Stephen Holden, New York Times, 09.12.2013
An homage to neorealism, the French New Wave and the cinematic power of faces, as well as a lark of sorts for Coiro and Bosworth after their collaboration on Life Happens.John Anderson, Variety, 09.09.2013
It's to Coiro's credit that no one emerges as a villain - and that, however painful, on the other side lies hope.Annlee Ellingson, Los Angeles Times, 09.12.2013
Unfortunately, this tale of an illicit romance between an unhappily married woman and a younger man traffics in far too many genre cliches, beginning with its idyllic locale.Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, 09.09.2013
