“How He Fell in Love is truly adult moviemaking that respects both carnality and commitment. It’s the type of mature drama that’s rarely seen in American movies.” – Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
“…the subtly wrought interior life (Amy)Hargreaves instills her in character holds your gaze throughout.” – John Lopez, The Huffington Post
“… (Marc) Meyers has so grounded the narrative that it feels like a fresh unique take.” – Terence Johnson, Award Circuit
“…the real standout of this story is the five-star turn by the wonderful and heartbreaking Amy Hargreaves who lays barren equal parts love and hate, joy and sorrow in a brave performance that isn’t afraid to show the emotional turbulence and confusion of a woman of age…” Star Pulse
