Chicago Tribune

By Michael Wilmington
Not too many actors last year bettered or equaled Beatty and Schreiber here, separately or (better yet) together. It's a pleasure and a privilege to watch them work.

Great, restrained performances of Beatty and Schreiber, delicately framed by the filmmaker's taste for visual compositions.

It's a pleasure to watch these unhurried, character-driven vignettes when such great actors are anchoring them.

By David Sterritt
The movie's seven scenes were filmed in real time (as opposed to condensed editing-room time) over the course of a year, giving the drama an extra touch of realism and humanity.

Despite the high quality of the acting, Spring Forward is for the most part sleepy, long-winded stuff.

By Ken Fox
Tom Gilroy's debut feature is a little obvious, but it's an excellent showcase for the criminally underused Ned Beatty.
