A powerful human story of anger, revenge and great courage, this film takes you on an intense journey that follows two fathers as their families and lives converge after the events of one fateful night. 'Suspenseful, emotional and completely engrossing' (Pete Hammond, Maxim), Reservation Road is 'a deft, satisfying thriller' (Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Original and gripping. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Unfortunately, the film grows contrived. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Oct 20, 2007

Rotten: Reservation Road is all about the darkness that lurks in the hearts of men, and although it's dark in there, all right, the power of redemption is always a possibility. This dour, ponderous picture just can't show the way. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: There's a problem when you make a film so dark that Hotel Rwanda looks like a crowd-pleaser -- especially when the story asks filmgoers to leave their reasoning skills at home. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 20, 2007
