Critics Consensus: Beautifully filmed, but decidedly dull, Evening is a collossal waste of a talented cast.

Evening is a slow burner, so slow in fact the credits roll before it ever gets going.

Strong cast is best part of tragic romantic drama.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the subject matter of this romantic drama -- mortality and pining for a lost love -- is profoundly sad. The relationships are complicated, bordering on scandalous (a love triangle between two men and a woman emerges, and one character who's about to be married propositions another on the eve of her wedding), and a thick pall of regret and death hangs over the film, which may be tough for young viewers to process. There's also plenty of drinking and smoking (not unexpected, given the '50s setting), and some cursing (mostly mild, with one notable use of "f--k"). If you're expecting the movie to be just like the book on which it's based, you may be disappointed.
