Ultimately it doesn't work, but there are a few small parts in here that show some potential of what could've been. Feels really cheap, which doesn't help it at all.

My Favorite Film Is 1941's Citizen Kane.

I wasted my 60 mins watching this movie and felt sorry for Daniel Day-Lewis that he had to play a movie this bad. Oh well, it's his wife's.

Lewis is never boring but that's tested in this lumbering ineffective movie.

Here's proof positive, Daniel Day-Lewis is the finest actor alive today. This movie is utterly sad, slow, dull, and filled with people you'd never want to meet. Yet somehow his performance is still top notch, and the only thing that kept me from turning it off. How he raised a child like Rose makes you wonder just how out of it Jack is...Avoid this unless you want to see PEI and Candian Tire on the big screen.

Daniel Day-Lewis joue à perfection ce rôle de 68ard écolo et hippie, perdu dans le monde américain des années 80. Camilla Belle, qui joue le rôle de sa fille, est magnifique et plein d'innocence. Mais comme il est dit dans le film, ce sont parfois les personnes innocentes qui s'avèrent les plus dangereuses... La relation père-fille est très forte, parfois même trop, mais on se laisse envouter par ces personnages rêveurs...

The Ballad of Jack and Rose is decent film. It is about a father and daughter isolated on an island off the East Coast and living on a once thriving commune grapple with the limits of family and sexuality. Daniel Day-Lewis and Camilla Belle give good performances. The script is okay but a little slow in places. Rebecca Miller did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama.

Fine acting from Lewis and Belle but the Ballad of Jack and Rose is a movie that only fans of independent or coming of age movies will enjoy. Rebecca Miller writes and directs this film about a young sheltered girl coming to age while her father is facing impending death. Lewis is brilliant (as he always is) but the script is limited and the story is at times so absurd that it become almost unbelievable. The audience tries to have sympathy for the young Slavin (Belle) but the poorly thought out script makes Belle extremely selfish and unlikable thus losing any emotional pull the audience may feel for her. Good effort but falls short of being a movie that people will talk about.

Camilla Bell is the greatest actress ever!

I didn't hate it and it's an alright movie but I didn't become involved in it and the characters and events sort of skimmed over me. It's the sort of movie you watch and enjoy or think yeah that was nice but it slowly slips out of your memory.

Not sure why this gets a bad rating. It had heart, drama, laughs, and Paul Dano.What is there to dislike?
January 29, 2013
Unsettling drama with an intriguing premise and lasting performances from the two leads.
January 24, 2013
This movie is a disappointment. There are a lot of talented actors in the cast and they do a good job here. The story of the movie is uninspired. The script is weak and it makes the film not enjoyable to watch. The characters actions do not make sense some of the time. Definitely avoid this movie and watch some better ones made by these fine actors.

I wasn't sure if I hated or liked this the first time I saw it, but the more I thought about it the more I thought about it the more I thought about it and then I kept on thinking about it... now I'm pretty sure I do like it. Maybe not. This is a strange review.

Tackles some taboo topics that may seem often ridiculous but that doesn't change the fact that Day Lewis and Belle command your attention. The director does what she can to build mood but basically we're only here for the performances.
