Nick McCarthy
Slant Magazine

This cumbersome and graceless 1950s-set period drama possesses the reactionary life insights and amateurish production values of a Lifetime soap.

Ms. O'Neal has her moments, but the decision to portray her as a raving maniac yields diminishing returns.

Connie Stevens' directorial debut blends family drama with psychological thriller to ultimately uneven effect.
