Time Out New York

By Ben Kenigsberg
His closing dedication—“For my daughter”—turns this into something actively creepy, as opposed to merely brainless, boring and inept.

Irene In Time

By Nancypryor
Irene In Time is a father-daughter story that examines that relationship, through Irene's (Tanna Frederick) experience and interviews with her friends about their fathers. It's a funny movie about a...

Irene in Time

By Rich S
What a dissappointment! The trailors were better than the actual movie. Purportedly a study of a young girls search for love in the image of her much adored "daddy", it is actaully three threads...

What a spectacular film. The main character, Irene, played by Tanna Frederick takes you all over the emotional map from her musings about her father to her dates from Hell. I like I was not watching,...

Irene in Time: A movie with soul.

This movie was a little like seeing your neighbor's kindergartner's recital. The proud parent enjoys every minute, but any another person would only stay, smile and nod if the parent were a close...

Tanna Frederick sizzles in this flick.

"Irene In Time" is a MUST see!

By moovienut
Henry Jaglom has outdone himself - again. This is his best film yet. Tanna Frederick's quirky, adorable and sometimes maddening character made me laugh and cry. Harriet Schock's beautiful songs are...

Good Movie

By slickdock
