Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Smollett, however, is a find with a smile that illuminates the screen -- the dominant performer in a uniformly well-acted film.
Fresh: An intensely emotional drama that mixes elements of Southern Gothic with the kinds of characters and tensions that prevail in the plays of Southern writers like Tennessee Williams.
Fresh: There has never been a film quite like Kasi Lemmons' shimmering Eve's Bayou.
Rotten: A gothic and, for better or worse, poetic memoir about a young girl and her family of Creole aristocrats.
I really do love this movie, it has a few twists that no one will really expect.
