Miller is a witty and socially acute observer; the three portraits in "Personal Velocity" are told with both novelistic richness and brisk, confident economy.

By the end of Personal Velocity, you want to invite all three female characters around for coffee to hear what happened next, and I can think of no higher praise for everyone involved.

Story about life's turning points is not for kids.

It's quite a stylised piece and it's credit to the cast and the filmmakers that the characters engage us to the extent that they do.

Three short stories about women at turning points in their lives, the movie gains power by condensing each story to 30 minutes each.

All three women deliver remarkable performances.

A trilogy of stories about women on the edge that features no less than three rotten dads.

None of the three stories has much narrative breadth ... but there is depth.

...works like a short story, or even poetry, in that it shifts our emotional center of gravity through a finely calibrated vernacular of gesture and language.

The acting is uniformly good by the three women stars, Kyra Sedgwick, Parker Posey, and Fairuza Balk.

Together, Miller, Kuras and the actresses make Personal Velocity into an intricate, intimate and intelligent journey.

Personal Velocity seems tailor-made for art-house audiences. It still cradles that short-story essence...but takes it to a place that stretches just beyond the page.

It's a short film, but it takes us deep inside each woman's head; by the end of each segment, we can look at each character's face and know what she's thinking.

Very psychoanalytical -- provocatively so -- and also refreshingly literary.
