Tanner Hall Reviews

Page 1 of 1
Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine

A misshapen beast of a film, Tanner Hall isn't so much kaleidoscopic, episodic drama as underdeveloped, perfunctory multi-character mash-up.

The result isn't bad, it just lacks momentum and a strong reason for existing.

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.

[A] tale of teenage rivalry, forbidden romance and other musty coming-of-age concerns.

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.

Uneven coming-of-age drama features sex, drugs, adultery.

Rarely rises above the generic, though its atmosphere of coddled young people indulging themselves in opulent surroundings is palpably authentic.

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 performances aren't bad, but the film quickly collapses into an incoherent, tonally inconsistent muddle with no narrative momentum.

The story is involving but the character are types rather than authentic individuals.

Nothing but a tone-deaf, cliché-ridden mediocrity at best.

There are some dedicated performances, but this unfocused drama adds nothing new to the girls' boarding school film curriculum.

Ultimately not even the gifted Mara can keep the film from feeling like a gauzy portrait of privilege.

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.

There is an empathy in Tanner Hall that overcomes its familiar trappings and iffy low-budget scope.

Film Journal International

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.
