Little Children Reviews

Page 1 of 8


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.

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.

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.

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.

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

The film displays a certain kinship with Sam Mendes's American Beauty, but Field is more tragedian than social satirist.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

A compelling snapshot of the suburbs as a hamster-like habitat that is not unlike high school: a place where individuality is emasculated, freedom is an illusion and youthful innocence only lasts as long as it takes to come to your senses.

The complexity of the relationships is meticulously portrayed, although at times overly earnest. Nonetheless, it's a powerful piece of cinema and one that reverberates and impacts by its themes.

it's a marvelously complex piece of work... there's an uneasy undercurrent running through the movie that keeps it from becoming just another skin-deep spoof of suburbia.

As the deranged and tortured Ronald, Jackie Earle Haley is appallingly creepy, meaning he's perfect. His unstable character lingers in your mind. While you're watching, he seems to be a dirty bomb of perverse violence.

A great movie that misses the mark a little, but provides plenty of drama, depth, entertainment value and questions to ponder.
