Hollywood Reporter - 01/18/2009
"[A] vigorously wrought film....Sarandon is strikingly sympathetic as the brittle, obsessive mother, while Brosnan's calm rectitude smartly masks a man on the verge of imploding. Both performances are daring and brilliantly shaded."
Box Office - 02/26/2010 3 stars out of 5 -- "A well-written film about grief and rebirth....THE GREATEST is a moving story of love, loss, hope and renewal."
Rolling Stone - 04/15/2010
"Sarandon nails every nuance as the alienated mom....[Brosnan] vividly etches the emotional fissures in a man coming apart."
USA Today - 04/09/2010 3 stars out of 4 -- "[S]ome moments are so raw and insightful that they feel like a punch to the heart.....The performances in this emotional drama are credible and moving..."
