Critic Reviews

  1. Too many of the characters are either good or bad, and that loss of nuance is missed.
  2. A little more variation in the script, though, might have yielded something truly great.
  3. 50
    The direction is never more than conventional, with a tear-inducing finale better suited to a TV soap opera.
  4. Alas, Mr. Fabian, directing his first feature-length fiction film, uses a club whenever a feather would do. He also mishandles the actors, in particular Mr. Neill and Ms. Okonedo, both of whom have been incomparably better elsewhere.
  5. The story is too rich in incident for Fabian, whose episodic TV-movie approach speeds through Laing’s lifetime of abuse.
