Critic Reviews

  1. Reviewed by: Scott Foundas
    A routine memory piece about long-buried family secrets that bubble back to the surface to wreak havoc.
  2. While most films in which the angry past confronts the guilty present degenerate into mawkish reconciliations, Emile errs on the side of restraint.
  3. 50
    Sensitively played but ultimately undone by its unconventional approach.
  4. Both lightweight and heavy-handed, Carl Bessai's arthouse drama can't even be redeemed by Ian McKellen's sensitive turn in the title role.
