Despite decent performances, a promising dramatic set-up leads to little of real interest.

Dave Calhoun, Time Out, 2014-07-29

 

The anguish of the lovers' decade-long separation can't be evoked in a matter of minutes ...

Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2014-04-17

 

The actors are smoothly professional and the production feels polished. But it's hard to recommend a romance without passion, no matter how pretty it looks.

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 2014-04-17

 

The magnetism between these stiff nonstarters wouldn't stick to a fridge, especially when the war-ex-machina forces them apart for years but the only credible passing of time is our own.

Aaron Hillis, Village Voice, 2014-04-16

 

This awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required by its period tale of a young secretary who falls in love with his employer's wife.

Justin Chang, Variety, 2013-09-04
