Codirectors Francesca Gregorini and Tatiana von Furstenberg work up some believable, easygoing rapport between the young actresses, but since the story line is hackneyed, it's rapport in a vacuum.
Rarely rises above the generic, though its atmosphere of coddled young people indulging themselves in opulent surroundings is palpably authentic.
The performances aren't bad, but the film quickly collapses into an incoherent, tonally inconsistent muddle with no narrative momentum.
Allows room for a lot of thinking about other things - its cast most notably, since watching their struggle to move beyond the mundane is painful.
There are some dedicated performances, but this unfocused drama adds nothing new to the girls' boarding school film curriculum.
A cinematic cocktail blended from the contents of a suburban medicine cabinet, "Tanner Hall" is a girls-boarding-school movie that could bring up the bile in more than a few throats.
Entertaining but sometimes sophomoric coming-of-age drama about a gaggle of nice and not-so-nice rich girls at a boarding school, boasting star Rooney Mara before her Social Network/Dragon Tattoo coups.
has its charms but it's mostly full of sound and fury, signifying nothing
A derivative and unappealing drama about four girls at a boarding school.
The result isn't bad, it just lacks momentum and a strong reason for existing.
There is an empathy in Tanner Hall that overcomes its familiar trappings and iffy low-budget scope.
The story is involving but the character are types rather than authentic individuals.
