Greatest - Pierce Brosnan, Susan Sarandon, Carey Mulligan, Johnny Simmons, Shana Feste It's all done with intelligence, sensitivity and credibility - Todd McCarthy / Variety

The Greatest pulls off a stunning fete, drawing an audience into a comprehensive film about grief. Duane Byrge / Hollywood Reporter

It's a magnificent, heartfelt romantic melodrama with startling acting, bold yet telling production design, and a worthy great - granddaughter to the films of Douglas Sirk.  - Ray Pride/ MCN

Sarandon nails every nuance as the alienated mom. And Brosnan, on a roll with this film and The Ghost Writer, vividly etches the emotional fissures in a man coming apart. The Greatest takes a piece out of you. - Peter Travers / Rolling Stone

It is an enormously moving, intelligent exploration of pain and grieving, a film that will touch you and stay with you.
Geoff Gilmore, Sundance Festival Director
