That a movie can inspire smirks in the same scene where a potential predator is seen scuba diving in the community swimming pool underneath hundreds of young children is one of the most notable feats of any modern motion picture.

Playing up her sturdiness, her furry dark brows and the wiry unruliness of her old-gold hair, Winslet is the best Emma Bovary I've seen-even if she's named Sarah, not Emma.

More than just another dissection of suburban sexual frustration, its concern with children, parents and those of us who lie somewhere in-between make Little Children a minor masterpiece.

It's not necessarily a cautionary tale, but more a look within a surface utopia that doesn't really exist.

As commentary on our time, it may be accurate. As movie drama, it isn't so much overheated as reheated in the microwave on high.

Its antiseptic textures merely whimper 'Oscar clip'

Bereft of a protagonist, the movie breaks down under the weight of absurd voice-over narration and an exploitative ending that is as indefensibly wrongheaded as it is cheap.

Little Children is about as close as a movie can get to literature %u2014 rich, nuanced, erudite and multi-layered.

The leads are self-delusional, secretive, dependent, nakedly desperate at times, and all fascinating.

The film is populated with such self-obsessed, distasteful characters, it's hard to care how or why any of them finds happiness.

The success Fields has with this film comes through the uncomfortable intersection between comedy, melodrama and tragedy. Oh, and romance.

Little Children's stone-cold suburbia reaches for Kubrick, but is also half Spielberg.

Un drama inteligente, tenso y reflexivo sobre la insatisfacción, el deseo, la infidelidad y las perversiones de un puñado de habitantes suburbanos. Excelente dirección y elenco.

Field directs all this with a restraint that sometimes verges on the dry, but there's little doubt the film builds to a shattering climax.
