All Critics (46) | Top Critics (17)

The Roads Not Taken is frequently moving, and a fascinating creative idea, but without sufficient information about Leo's character to anchor the narrative, it feels too abstract.

It's a chamber piece in many ways, but with bold flashback excursions that come close to causing its emotional engine to overheat.

[T]hat's it. That's the film. Three different Javier Bardems moaning solidly, sometimes crying, and struggling to write, for 85 minutes.

The Roads Not Taken, an understated drama from Sally Potter, is rich with small moments of intimacy.

A sad, timely story of family and fragility.

At its root, "The Roads Not Taken" is not an examination of where we go or don't go in life, but who we choose to go there with.
