    Powder Blue (film) movie scenes

    According to Variety magazine, "the heartstring-pulling contrivances of the film, set during Christmastime, go way over the top...Biel often overacts even more than her role requires." The magazine calls director Buis "trumpeting of the power of love in the city of lonely hearts ... both ear-splittingly loud and tone-deaf at the same time" with "Jonathan Selas color palette of nightmarish reds and blues and blinding whites, simply enforc[ing] the pics borderline hysteria."

    Rotten Tomatoes collected only eight reviews for Powder Blue with an average rating of 3.7 out of 10.
