Critic Reviews for Group
A terrible movie that some people will nevertheless find moving.
The actresses may have worked up a back story for the women they portray so convincingly, but viewers don't get enough of that background for the characters to be involving as individuals rather than types.
The movie is pretty funny now and then without in any way demeaning its subjects.
The nine women are a touching reminder that we all have our own, very different problems, but by relating to each other, we can come to terms with just about anything.
Mastering its formidable arithmetic of cameras and souls, Group articulates a flood of emotion.
Audience Reviews for Group
A interestingly mundane 90min consisting of nine women including a therapist, with each 'patient' having unequal sharing time with the group. It's safe to say the proportion of extroverts to introverts is 1:1. The awkward cacophony of voices, morals and lifestyles is felt almost immediately as the first session is more or less incessant bickering over queer lifestyle. Needless to say, the bigot & the Christian tag-team against the lesbian & the amputee whose beau is going thru a F to M transition. If this is anything like reality, I think I'm okay with my depression & generalized anxiety; god forbid if any of them were to start crying, the room fell all but silent with the weeping, unstable character completely exposed with no empathy or sympathy whatsoever.
While the subject's appeal is limited and the film's 106-minute running time excessive, viewers who do respond to the pic will find it raw, real and cathartic.
