Critic Reviews for Empire of Dirt

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • Empire of Dirt tells a traditional mothers-and-daughters story in a new way by making their Cree heritage and the role it has in their lives and relationships the true heart of the drama.

    November 21, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Empire of Dirt is a too-neatly structured look at a couple of First Nations mother-daughter pairs coping with traumas both fresh and ancestral, whose descent into Canadian storytelling clichés is so pronounced.

    November 14, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Empire of Dirt is a simple family drama, but well crafted to fit the story it wants to tell.

    November 21, 2013 | Rating: 3/4
  • [A] well-intentioned and finely crafted drama that explores the legacy of the love deficit created by white government intervention in First Nations communities via residential schools.

    November 21, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • ...ultimately most successful as a showcase for Gee's thoroughly impressive turn as the central character.
