Critic Reviews of "Anywhere But Here"Time OutJune 24, 2006
Portman is excellent, balancing wisdom and petulance, loyalty and imposition...VarietyJanuary 02, 2006
As a depiction of a loving-turbulent relationship between a single mom (Susan Sarandon) and her rebellious teenage daughter (Natalie Portman), Wang's meller is nicely crafted but old-fashioned like Hollywood's weepies of yesteryear.Minneapolis Star TribuneNovember 06, 2002
The movie drops in on a crucial part of their lives, follows it for a few minutes and then jettisons to another episode. It's like watching 10 short stories.Globe and MailMarch 19, 2002
Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman put on an acting clinic that's a treat to watch, but, no matter how accomplished, a clinic is not a movie. They do a lot with a little, yet it's far from enough.Rolling StoneMay 11, 2001
You start wishing you were anywhere but here -- preferably at last year's far funnier Slums of Beverly Hills.New York Magazine/VultureJanuary 01, 2000
Adele and Ann don't really seem like mother and daughter; their conflicts are more a matter of theatrical convenience than something born in the blood.Common Sense MediaDecember 22, 2010
Solid story of independence for teens.Reeling ReviewsApril 09, 2005
Director Wayne Wang has delivered a solid entertainment, particularly for women, with Anywhere But Here.Jam! MoviesJune 07, 2004
Adele and Ann are not easy screen characters to like, but they are easy to believe in -- especially in the skins of Sarandon and Portman.Jam! MoviesJune 07, 2004
A subtle and unexpected pleasure, all nuanced performance and character detail.Film Quips OnlineFebruary 08, 2003
Natalie Portman is my new hero.Entertainment TodayJanuary 16, 2003
The title might very well be an appropriate description of what more impatient filmgoers may be feeling after sitting through this frustratingly mediocre dramedy.
