The universal truths Gregorini ostensibly hopes to unearth here actually end up feeling more than a little murky.

Tackling the pain of motherhood and guilt of daughterhood, director Francesca Gregorini builds unbearable tension into scenes that otherwise risk tilting toward melodrama.

A film so self-serious that it demands to be remade as a Seth MacFarlane farce, "The Truth About Emanuel" mixes the ludicrous and the pretentious in a story about mommy issues gone wild.

It's not so much a thriller as it is a ride on a runaway crazy train.

The movie goes off the deep end early, often and to little effect.

The movie, trapped in the weeds of self-pity and skin-deep badassery, never quite earns the sympathy it so strenuously solicits.

The film has an odd and striking energy, and the chemistry between Scodelario and Biel has an electrical charge to it.

A lack of development - in both characters and storyline - will likely leave you feeling duped.

The result plays like bad poetry, eager to fool around with symbols, but unable to use them complexly or to realize their transformative potential.

Gregorini presents her characters as recognizably human balls of complexity, nudging but never forcing them toward a sad, beautiful conclusion.

Offbeat, but also frequently off-key and somewhat off-putting.
