Critic Reviews for Lake City
A convoluted, discombobulated take on a small-town drama, Lake City shifts gears so often it never gets out of the driveway.
With all the high-profile movies blasting into theaters at this time of year, Lake City will probably get lost in the shuffle. That won't be a tragedy.
Mother and son have an uneasy bond that should be familiar to anyone who has ever seen a movie in which a child's room has been preserved and locked tight.
A movie that just didn't really ring true.
Audience Reviews for Lake City
A story utterly devoid of originality...Troy Garity the Black sheep of the family on the run from drug dealers goes back home to hide out and ends up dealing with the long ago 'family tragedy' that he accidently killed his kid brother how many fucking times have we seen this plot..the only upside is Dave Mahews dies.
Ive always been a Spacek fan-the older she gets the better in my opinion. She doesn't disappoint in this somewhat slow moving, tense drama playing a mother that has lost a child and unable to deal with the fall out it has produced. Troy Garity is the son whose guilt over his brothers death has eaten away at everything in his path. Coming to terms with his alcoholism, his drug abuse and the son he just found out he had drives him back home to finally deal with the pain-and his mother.
Sissy and Troy are good but the screenplay is rather scattered not leaving them with much to work with although they do have one good emotional scene.
