Michael Elliott (Movie Parables) says, "This is really the kind of story that calls for glycerin drops be placed in the actresses' eyes for the weepy close-ups. Remarkably, writer/director John Duigan doesn't go for the over-the-top, hankie-wringing melodramatic treatment that the story itself demands. But the film doesn't really work without it. There's no romantic chemistry at play between the actors. With a two hour running time, we need a bit more than that to hold our interest."
