J. O.'s rating of the film All the Real Girls

A romantic dreamland, or wasteland, where endlessly talking characters collide and explode. It's sentimental, honest, slow-paced and sad. It should feel stilted and corny, but somehow it works and it's heartbreaking. The performances are exceptional. The look feels dated, but in an appropriate way. Muted, desaturated colours. A dying landscape - autumn. A wonderful movie to revisit.
