Mom is wrongly accused of murder; language, violence.

Fred Schepisi's film is a harrowing, moving, clever piece of work.
December 19, 2011
Streep's beauty and talent and director Fred Schepisi's intelligence are both shown to best advantage, without easy points or grandstanding.

The powerful performances and sharp script augment this revealing human drama.

Streep and Neill are the film's perfectly matched thoroughbreds. But the film is neither a double star turn nor the best kind of courtroom drama; it is a sort of epic mosaic of national character.

Meryl Streep gives another stellar performance in this fact-based Australian drama about a working class woman accused of killing her daughter.

Admirably off-putting performance by Streep in a reasonably involving Australian court drama.

Streep ... plays Lindy Chamberlain with the kind of virtuosity that seems to redefine the possibilities of screen acting.

'Set in Australia, a couple is hurled into the media spotlight, unsuspecting of its power to twist the truth overnight. Streep proves she is a towering inferno of an actress.'

Streep and Schepisi save it from being TV-movie material.
