Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Plays slyly with noir; adroitly twists and turns away from easy expectations in its final minutes. This thriller's got one sharp, savage ending. Marsh takes a black-eyed stare out from the gravestone-gray, waning days of the Troubles.

A grim but measured and intelligent art-house slow-burner.

The acting in this film is very good. The plot is lean and powerful. It is pretty depressing, but it seems true enough in its depiction of this troubled period of history.

By the end, the film shows not only the power of this influence but also its terrible price in an often merciless conflict.

The film relies on terse dialogue and boggy colors to create an atmosphere dense with anxiety -- all well handled by director James March.

Themes ripped from today's headlines lend "The Troubles" of Northern Ireland very tense, sobering, contemporary immediacy. . . Riseborough [is] mesmerizing at first sight.

A tautly minimalist, occasionally generic study of betrayal and family ties.

Reeling Reviews

[Director James Marsh] shows a deft hand with his actors and elicits a notable performance from [Andrea] Riseborough. The production is straightforward on all fronts and catches the bleakness hovering above Belfast under siege.

[Riseborough's] work is indrawn and riveting. It's hard to read the look in her eye, but we never stop trying.

These are characters for whom true belief in a cause has probably become impossible; they know how much that costs. Marsh does a compelling job of illustrating that for the rest of us.

Marsh focuses this slowly simmering drama on more universal themes of family, betrayal and decisions that people make that are both right and wrong at the same time.

...a quietly disturbing look at the choices placed before someone who is caught between two worlds, neither offering harbor.

Riseborough's ever-mobile face is a study as Collette cycles from hopelessness to panic to mama-bear rage.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

By keeping politics in the background and emphasizing more than a few tenuous relationships, he allows the conflict, mistrust, and dishonesty in both Collette's and Mac's camps to come through without taking sides.

The movie is sure-footed in its storytelling, right up to its appropriately open-ended conclusion.

The proceedings move so quietly and thoughtfully as to be occasionally somnolent, though they're punctuated with spasms of the violence that marked the Troubles.
