Little Children Reviews

Page 1 of 8

Film4

More than just another dissection of suburban sexual frustration, its concern with children, parents and those of us who lie somewhere in-between make Little Children a minor masterpiece.

It's not necessarily a cautionary tale, but more a look within a surface utopia that doesn't really exist.

As commentary on our time, it may be accurate. As movie drama, it isn't so much overheated as reheated in the microwave on high.

Its antiseptic textures merely whimper 'Oscar clip'

Bereft of a protagonist, the movie breaks down under the weight of absurd voice-over narration and an exploitative ending that is as indefensibly wrongheaded as it is cheap.

Blame Field (remember, Perrotta also wrote the knifelike Election), for facing the material too squarely.

A risky and rewarding art film, but definitely for grown-ups.

Little Children is about as close as a movie can get to literature %u2014 rich, nuanced, erudite and multi-layered.

The leads are self-delusional, secretive, dependent, nakedly desperate at times, and all fascinating.

The film is populated with such self-obsessed, distasteful characters, it's hard to care how or why any of them finds happiness.

Provides a taut commentary on hypocrisy, human interaction, and the lies we tell ourselves...

The success Fields has with this film comes through the uncomfortable intersection between comedy, melodrama and tragedy. Oh, and romance.

Little Children's stone-cold suburbia reaches for Kubrick, but is also half Spielberg.

Un drama inteligente, tenso y reflexivo sobre la insatisfacción, el deseo, la infidelidad y las perversiones de un puñado de habitantes suburbanos. Excelente dirección y elenco.

Film Journal International

Field directs all this with a restraint that sometimes verges on the dry, but there's little doubt the film builds to a shattering climax.

While Little Children is replete with powerful moments and strong performances (particularly by erstwhile Bad News Bear Jackie Earle Hayley), it never quite adds up.

Cinema em Cena

O filme de Todd Field ilustra nosso eterno despreparo para lidar com as grandes questões da vida ou mesmo com nossos menores impulsos.
