Fresh: The surehandedly wrought, beautifully acted, almost unbearably tense In the Bedroom is a rare film, not to be missed. – Jay Carr, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The story and direction are powerful enough. But it's the acting that takes In the Bedroom higher. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: So emotionally pure and rigorous that you're more than willing to go along with it. – Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel, Jun 24, 2010

Dreadfully Depressing

Not exactly a feel-good romp. This film is superbly acted and well crafted but it will leave you empty. It robs us of our ability to feel hopeful about the world. Dramatizing domestic violence in such a careful, well-thought out way is both gratuitous and painful for the viewer.

Amazing piece of art

Absolutely awesome film. The plot, the acting, the way it keeps you on your toes. Just a great piece that everyone should watch. One of my all time favorite movies!
