  1. A potent, moving, liberal-minded docudrama.
  2. Although In My Country is charged with moments of grace and feeling, the film is ultimately betrayed by the clunky Jackson-Binoche romance.
  3. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    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.
  4. Would be better if it weren't so preachy.
  5. Reviewed by: Derek Elley
    An unquestionably sincere but dramatically stillborn outing by veteran John Boorman.
  6. Wall Street Journal
    Reviewed by: Joe Morgenstern
    It's a bad idea done disastrously.
