Critic Reviews for The Confession
Audience Reviews for The Confession
Half the script is interesting, but a sleeper without the best of efforts. That effort was perhaps made but not quite achieved. A joy to see Amy Irving again, especially with such a solid performance. Kingsley & Baldwin also do their craft justice, but something just didn't click whether it was the direction or the editing I don't know. In the end this is a tale of over-lapping moralities told with noble, yet flawed, characters.
(**): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] The cast is fine, but I felt that the film should have focused more solely on the Kingsley character and not Baldwin's. Fair at best.
