The film opens this week in New York. Early reviews are good, particularly for Ashley Judd whom New York Magazine says "gives the performance of her career." It is "one of the seasons biggest surprises," he says.
Hollywood Reporter says,
Another person working from the heart is her star, Ashley Judd, who perfectly embodies a Southern woman whose father issues have become men issues. Riding on Judd's mesmerizing performance, this film with a carefully marketed release could become a modest hit in specialty cinemas and later in home video.
Variety doesn't like the film, but notes Judd's strong performance in its brief review.
