  1. 90
    A scrupulous and impeccably acted account of the fallout from a family secret.
  2. 90
    It has all the virtues of fine stage drama: narrative economy, honest emotion, and characters so closely defined that the most pedestrian encounters between them are revelatory.
  3. Remarkable for its seamless ensemble performances.
  4. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey

    Sensitive directorial bow by editor Wiebke von Carolsfeld and solid performances lend conviction if not quite distinction to the drama Marion Bridge.
  5. 70
    Story of small triumphs and everyday sorrows is never maudlin or sentimental.
  6. This Canadian film is extraordinarily low-key, considering the explosive secrets the sisters unearth, but that is part of its strength.
  7. 50
    An earnest, if dreary little Canadian domestic drama.
