    The best thing about the movie is a good cinema score and a competent lead actress. The worst thing is an overly dramatised story that pushes the bounds of believability. I don't know enough about the author or her situation to make a point about the truth of her account but I do know there are better examples of this type of story out there. Checkout "The Jammed' an Australian movie with another (far better) take on the issue. Expand

    Eden is never less than suspenseful, but rather than sentimentally pander to easy outrage, or indulge in icky women-in-distress titillation, the movie...zeros in on the details of how dignity can be stripped like bark from a tree, and the queasy determination it takes to stay alive in a living hell.

    It’s not a documentary, it isn’t entertainment, and aside from Chung’s intelligent, dignified performance, this sure as heck isn’t art.

    Eden may be unpleasant, but it's not as grim as you'd imagine, and always compulsively watchable. If only all issue movies were this entertaining.
