    Stunningly shot by cinematographer Nigel Bluck (Handsome Harry) the film captures beautifully the magic of the foliage and the surrounding landscapes.

    Leigh certainly has a sense of cinematic style and Emily Browning possesses a fragile beauty that hides a remarkably resilient interior. It's a pity, however, that Jane Campion did not exert a more powerful sway on the result.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Richard Mowe
    The film proves a gripping, if uneven, cinematic journey.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 80 Richard Mowe
    Michael Apted opts for a certain dated and mannered appeal with a whiff of nostalgia for more innocent times, which lends added enchantment.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Richard Mowe
    Both emotionally charged and at times extremely funny, with humor emerging naturally from the characters' predicaments, Meet Monica Velour has the feel-good factor without comprising its ideals.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Richard Mowe
    The film wears its heart on its sleeve, but the drama falters when the tone grows over-earnest; additionally, Scott's direction fails to exert a tight grasp on his material.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 60 Richard Mowe
    This film is only for those with strong constitutions and a penchant for painstaking details.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Richard Mowe
    As tales of troubled families go, it may have aspirations to be like "Ordinary People," but it falls way short.
