Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 09/07/2006
"[T]he film pulls you in like a magnetic force field."
New York Times - 09/29/2006
"[A] superb film adaptation of the novel by Tom Perrotta....A rigorous study of adult behavior....[The film] balances tenderness with satire."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/13/2006
"[A] jolting, artfully made drama set in and around a suburban playground somewhere between AMERICAN BEAUTY and IN THE BEDROOM on America's psychic highway."
Rolling Stone - 10/19/2006
"A never-better Kate Winslet goes so deep into her character you can almost feel her nerve endings....Most movies fade from the memory. This one sticks."
Total Film - 12/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "Todd Field's second feature prickles with sterile threat and looming suburban doom....Field gathers everything into a climax that trains a brutal light on the big idea: living is easy, growing up is hard."
Box Office - 12/01/2006
"All may seem neat and tidy, but simmering beneath is a hotbead of anxiety, frustration and infidelity."
Uncut - 01/01/2007
"[A] superbly realised and wryly comic melodrama of suburban angst, anomie and adultery."
Premiere - 04/01/2007
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[O]ne of the best American films in recent memory. It is by turns disturbing and uplifting, both horrible and horribly funny, which is to say, more than a bit like real life."
Ultimate DVD - 03/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's impossible not to be drawn into Field's intriguing and beautifully crafted drama."
