Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The ravages of the Civil War shouldn't require much jazzing up for the movies, but the British director Daniel Barber labors to impress with his Southern period thriller "The Keeping Room."
Fresh: Writer Julia Hart and director Daniel Barber develop the women's relationships at a careful, steady pace, giving them time to bond; this is essential since they must learn to trust and respect each other to survive.
Fresh: Director Daniel Barber has a talent for sussing out the brutality intrinsic in the everyday.
Fresh: Dark, brooding and brutal, "The Keeping Room" features finely carved performances in a Civil War period piece that might as well be post-apocalyptic.
