Twitter Capsule: Notting Hill's McKee stands out but everyone's good in Winterbottom's grungy, endearing stab at a Hannah and Her Sisters

VOR:   Mystifying how Winterbottom can be so proficient at so many genres and score a crossover hit in none. Proves low-fi streetside filmmaking and women-driven romantic study can coexist.
