  • The filmmaking is sure-handed, the performances authentic.

    October 29, 2015 | Rating: 3/4
  • Wilson and Wilde have a light touch that makes them perfect for the comedies they often make. Here, Morano leads them to much darker places, and they plunge right in.

    October 22, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A film with two very strong central performances from a pair of underrated actors that falters by being so self-aware of the tortured existence it's attempting to capture.

    October 16, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Reed Morano, an accomplished cinematographer making her directorial debut, does a fine job hewing to her uncoiling characters like a shroud, and her actors are up to the task.

    October 16, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The setup is a scriptwriting gimme - if your central couple lose a child, practically any subsequent behavior is justifiable - but the actors sell what they're given quite effectively.

    October 15, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The leads make unbearable pain bearable to watch - Wilson is the sympathetic everyman once again, while Wilde displays depths of feeling she's rarely gotten the chance to exhibit before.

Audience Reviews for Meadowland

    Meadowland is further evidence of the love for indie cinema. This is a heartbreaking film of the characters attempting to move on after a family tragedy. Luke Wilson has never been the big name, but he has never been dull and his performance here is incredible. Olivia Wilde is the key to the film and she demonstrates why she now has the ability to step behind the camera. She is also in amazing form and it's tough to watch this film. Meadowland wasn't an easy film to track down, but I would recommend checking it out if you're a fan of indie dramas. This is a dark drama so be warned going in, but it's worth it. 29/02/2020

    Olivia Wilde is superb as a wife dealing with the loss of a child. This shows the very real downward spiral that deep trauma can cause. It also deals with how it can tear a family apart and lead the to question their own morals to find who they really are.
