Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A powerful, ironic film. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Director-producer Stanley Kramer and scenarist Abby Mann have distilled the essence of Katherine Anne Porter's bulky novel in a film that appeals to the intellect and the emotions. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: As glib as Stanley Kramer often is, there is probably nothing glibber in his entire output than this Abby Mann adaptation of Katherine Anne Porter's novel. – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The film's interest lies in the excellent cast. – Film4, Jun 24, 2010
