O'Rowe... evokes both a theatrical and literary sense of narrative, with scenes effectively unfolding like well-honed chapters.
This Irish drama has little new to add to the illicit love affair genre, but is still sympathetically scripted and emotionally acted
[Delinquent Season] acutely highlights the fragile nature of modern relationships through extremely human and engaging characters.
Mark O'Rowe will undoubtedly direct a brilliant piece of cinema someday. The Delinquent Season is not it.
The whole darn thing is overwritten. Everyone is on autopilot. Everyone can do better. Nobody - especially a sleepy [Cillian] Murphy - is aware of just how bad a film they're dealing with.
Intense, earthy, [and] bristling with authorial intelligence...
Ultimately, however, this dinner party, despite many fine ingredients, leaves you still feeling peckish.
There is occasionally a staginess to the screenplay but the characters are real and familiar, the performances are full on, and it is engaging right the way through.
The Delinquent Season will undoubtedly inspire some interesting conversations about fidelity, masculinity, obsession and the mundane work of relationships. But next time, O'Rawe needs to fully explore what it is that makes cinema a different medium.
If this film reminds us of anything, it's not to let go lightly.
