    Sobering and important.
  2. A potent, moving, liberal-minded docudrama.
  3. Although In My Country is charged with moments of grace and feeling, the film is ultimately betrayed by the clunky Jackson-Binoche romance.

    At its best when Anna confronts her tangled Afrikaaner legacy and when it brings the heretical notion of forgiveness up front, where a non-African audience can come to grips with it.
  5. Would be better if it weren't so preachy.
  6. Reviewed by: Derek Elley

    An unquestionably sincere but dramatically stillborn outing by veteran John Boorman.
  7. It's a bad idea done disastrously.
