Critic Reviews

  1. Brokedown Palace does have some plot implausibilities but Kaplan, manages to turn some hashed story lines into something substantial and emotionally affecting.
  2. 75
    The heart of the film is in the performances of Danes and Beckinsale after they're sent to prison.
  3. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy
    It's close to a no-win situation dramatically, culturally and politically, and Kaplan deals with it plausibly enough by concentrating on the performances and the interior conflicts they reveal.
  4. Brokedown Palace is good enough so that you wish it were better.
  5. Reviewed by: Laura Shin
    The plotting could use some finessing, but fine acting makes this film worthwhile.
  6. It's strangely enjoyable to see her(Danes) and Beckinsale busted on a bogus heroin-smuggling rap and thrown in the slammer with bad 'dos and no makeup.
