A waterlogged would-be epic, lacking the emotion, narrative invention and visual brilliance that mark [Vincent] Ward's best films.
River Queen is a period drama filled with some striking imagery but which ultimately keeps viewer involvement at an unfathomable distance.
takes on the qualities of a disjointed vision, sometimes languid, sometimes violent, but always seeming to be only half-glimpsed on the threshold of sleep.
An ambitious film from the talented, serious-minded Vincent Ward, River Queen takes us into the magnificent heart of New Zealand, both geographically and spiritually.
Here is an intriguing movie about a young woman caught between two different worlds in 1860s New Zealand. Young Sara learns the talent and skills of stitching and sewing open flesh from her father. Employed with the army that is set upon colonizing the lands belonging to the Maoris, young Sara and her family trudged along the coast of the river bends. She meets a young Maori boy, and the two grow up together and begin to share a love that is short-lived (when Tommy Boy dies of sickness). Her son is then taken away by his family, she searches for him along the river for years. Her search brings her deep into Maori country. Great cast- Samantha Morton, Cliff Curtis, Kiefer Sutherland, and Temuera Morrison. Worthy!
