Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Winning performances by Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron lend considerable charm to Sweet November, an otherwise predictable romantic drama with welcome flashes of humor. Keanu plays Nelson Moss, a hard-charging San Francisco ad executive who endures a compulsory stint in driving school, where he meets free-spirited Sara Deever (Theron). She immediately identifies him as a soulless, materialistic capitalist who desperately needs to slow down and smell the roses. Resorting to clever subterfuge, Sara convinces Nelson to be her roommate for one month -- 30 short days that ultimately change both their lives forever. In remaking the 1968 weepie of the same name -- which starred Sandy Dennis and Anthony Newley -- director Pat O'Connor (Inventing the Abbotts) occasionally resorts to familiar soap-opera conventions and characters (including the girl's obligatory gay best friend, played here with aplomb by Patriot villain Jason Isaacs). But he elicits fine performances from the always radiant Theron and the frequently wooden Reeves, who seems more emotionally limber than usual. The third-act revelation of Sara's "secret" won't surprise anyone who's ever seen more than three romance movies, but it's handled with tact and sensitivity. The DVD includes a behind-the-scenes featurette titled "From the Heart," cast/crew career highlights, and a theatrical trailer.
San Francisco Chronicle
Sweet November is neither a masterpiece nor a remake of one, but its wistfulness is infectious, and its melancholy mood lingers for days. Mick LaSalle
