Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As its title suggests, this eccentric film written and directed by Isabel Coixet, contemplates the insufficiency of language to encapsulate traumatic experience.
Fresh: Can a single scene save a movie? An hour and 20 minutes into The Secret Life of Words, Sarah Polley delivers a halting, evocative 10-minute monologue that finally unlocks the mystery behind her guarded character.
Fresh: Sarah Polley gives a wonderfully searching performance, as a woman in a state of extreme isolation.
Rotten: The claustrophobic and artificial atmosphere of the setting is unfortunately matched by the equally artificial drama.
A moving, emotional must see film
Please take the time to watch. So many don't want to know or understand what happens to people in times of war/distress. You will not regret buying or renting this movie.
