Movie Reviews

Humane and Intelligent
Crystal Gonzales | Albuquerque, N.M. | 03/08/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Not many people will like this movie. It is one of those, that is pure dialogue (Away From Her).

If you like intelligent, beautiful, sad movies. You may like this.

For this type, I think this film is very well made."
Serious Drama set against backdrop of Christmas...
BRIAN A. O'DELL | Cliffside Park, New Jersey United States | 11/27/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In many regards this movie comes across much like a stage play. Starring Jason Robards and Julie Harris, who are two of this nation's finest actors it is a poignant tale of a a widower who 'rents' a woman to be his companion over the Christmas holiday weekend. It is a bittersweet movie, but a fine one stemming from a good script with an interesting 'twist' at the end. While perhaps not everyone's 'cup of tea' for a Christmas movie, it is a enjoyable drama."
