You couldn't accuse the cast members of being good actors (several struggle to be merely amateurish).
| Original Score: 3/5
[It] is about the familiar more than it is about the forbidden.
Writer-director Dan Sallitt's fourth feature moves with confident boldness from the incestuous gauntlet its prologue impishly hurls down.
An intelligent and chillingly engaging dark arthouse film, dedicated to Eric Rohmer.
| Original Score: B+
Sensitive subject-matter is handled with tact and intelligence in this tart if talky US indie.
Sallitt dedicates "The Unspeakable Act" to Eric Rohmer, and there is some of the cloistered hush of Salinger's Glass family here, but this fluent film has its own serene yet vivid life.
