Absorbing, Resonant, Romantic, Slow, Great writing

See it if Cruz's languid romance captures both period of change & universality of longing w/ lush dialogue Well staged in Gallery's plain speak style

Don't see it if Despite Miami setting, pacing a litlle slow via actors Uneven performances but Smith's matriarch & Santos' lector carry drama to tragic end

Slow 1st half, A bit dated, Several brilliant scenes

See it if you want to see an uneven revival of an important script from a powerful writer.

Don't see it if you know you’ll have trouble sitting through a poorly paced 1st half to get to the juicy parts: a series of beautifully constructed scenes. Read more
