REVIEWS:

"If Woody Allen had let John Cassavetes take over September, it might have turned out a lot like Helena from the Wedding."-- D.B. Bates, The Parallax Review

“Helena From the Wedding” has more to offer than many films of its type. Among its achievements is the kind of comfortable, shaded acting we expect from seasoned professionals and a script (by the director, Joseph Infantolino) that almost scarily captures the cadences of whining white privilege." - Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES - 11/12/10

"Dynamite performances by Tergesen and Lynskey." - Nathan Southern, THE ALLMOVIE BLOG - 11/11/10
