Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Life is suffering, as the Buddha said (including in Hardy's emotionally grinding novels), but it's more complex and contradictory than the ginned-up realism Mr. Winterbottom delivers here. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Jul 12, 2012

Fresh: As a portrait of a nation amid accelerated and profound change, "Trishna" is a vivid piece of cinema. As a melodrama, it's provocative without being emotionally involving, the central performance more distancing than engaging. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Jul 12, 2012

Fresh: This is one of the best and bravest of recent adaptations of classic literature; if you're even a little bit intrigued, ignore what others say and don't let it pass you by. – Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Jul 12, 2012

Fresh: Something in Hardy's tragic inclinations obviously appeals to Winterbottom; this is the third time he's adapted one of the author's novels, with the liberties he takes with the source material increasing each time. – Ian Buckwalter, NPR, Jul 12, 2012
