A convoluted, discombobulated take on a small-town drama, Lake City shifts gears so often it never gets out of the driveway.

With all the high-profile movies blasting into theaters at this time of year, Lake City will probably get lost in the shuffle. That won't be a tragedy.

Mother and son have an uneasy bond that should be familiar to anyone who has ever seen a movie in which a child's room has been preserved and locked tight.

A movie that just didn't really ring true.

One of those Deep Dark Secret movies, the dull indie Lake City combines a wholly uninteresting family mystery with a wholly unconvincing crime drama.

Only natural spitfire Spacek, as the pickup-driving mom of the land, feels fresh.

When Sissy Spacek speaks her cliched lines in the mediocre screenplay of Lake City, her delivery lends them a resonance that is not in the written words.

The movie has an earnest tone, and a burnished golden glow that's pleasing to the eye, but the characters have no life beyond their immediate problems, and the actions the plot requires them to take to resolve them.

The real shame is the waste of Spacek. She's an American treasure who doesn't work nearly enough; to see this star make a rare appearance, only to wither among such emotional cheap shots, is the one thing in Lake City that will genuinely make you weep.

Added to the general torpidity and twangy tropes of this Southern family drama is the discomfort of watching a natural actor force it.

There is very little wasted motion, to be sure, but also very little real-life like ambience.

As for Sissy Spacek, I can't think of a sounder role to reflect the unique qualities that make her so special.

Moore and Hill's script plunges [Sissy] Spacek in a mawkish stew of banality and improbability composed of bits and pieces of earlier roles.
