Robert Redford's best and richest directorial effort...

Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, 2007-11-08

 

Redford turns a dry subject into high art, matching the achievements of his other directing efforts in Ordinary People and A River Runs Through It.

Michael Booth, Denver Post, 2007-07-03

 

Perfectly pitched, the film brims with insight and wit. Highly recommended.

Derek Adams, Time Out, 2006-02-09

 

Mr. Redford has made a rich, handsome, articulate film about a subject truly worth talking about.

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 2003-05-20

 

What Redford is saying isn't new, but it has rarely been said in a mainstream movie with this kind of passion.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 2001-05-12

 

Manages a trick that few films even dare try -- to take a hard look at personal and public moral issues and still provide dazzling entertainment.

Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle, 2000-01-01

 

Crisply directed by Redford from a thought-provoking script by Paul Attanasio, and featuring a slew of strong performances.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2000-01-01

 

Witty, entertaining, intelligent.

Lucy Mohl, Film.com, 2000-01-01

 

The screenplay, by former Washington Post film critic Paul Attanasio, is smart, subtle and ruthless.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2000-01-01

 

An exciting achievement, not only the most accomplished film of Redford's directorial career, but one of the best to carry his name.

Hal Hinson, Washington Post, 2000-01-01

 

Written with clean-cut force by Paul Attanasio and directed with panache by Robert Redford.

Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, 2000-01-01

 

Artfully constructed and beautifully shot.

Desson Thomson, Washington Post, 2000-01-01
