Critics' Reviews

"[Janeane] Garofalo and [Morgan] Spector are particularly good at suggesting ruthless determination under a friendly enough facade. You’d think twice about sharing a vodka with these two."

Review by Elisabeth Vincentelli from New York Post

"A thoughtful, well-written domestic drama with something original to say about immigrant families living by old world values in a new world culture? Pinch me!"

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety
