'Time Stands Still': Laura Linney & Alicia Silverstone Get Raves (PHOTOS)

'Time Stands Still,' starring Laura Linney and Alicia Silverstone, opened on Broadway Thursday night.

The New York Times highly praised Linney's nuanced performance as a war-scarred photographer returning to Brooklyn, said that Brian D'Arcy James who plays her shell-shocked war reporter husband has never been better and Silverstone is convincing.

Variety said that Silverstone's "enormously likable performance" puts the others to shame--but had little but great things to say about the others.

Linney wore a little black dress--the article of clothing to which the NYT compared her over the weekend.
