“Hairs on the back of the neck. Every time.” – Kevin Maher, Times (UK)

“The film shimmers with the irresistible pleasures that define Hollywood at its best — it’s polished like glass, funny, knowing and bright, and filled with characters whose lives are invariably sexier and more purposeful than our own.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
