Little Woods is very personal and very touching, and it makes a compelling argument as to why good people do bad things, a tried-and-true motif that has become a staple of the new westerns emerging today.
The life-on-the-margins drama makes a fine, tense vehicle for Tessa Thompson, who in the last few years has stood out in a variety of genres.
Nia DaCosta's absorbing debut is laced with urgent dread, experienced by characters you care deeply about.
It is the performances which really make Little Woods work, particularly Tessa Thompson's.
Spare in her writing and expressive in her visuals, DaCosta works with an adept assurance that belies her dearth of experience behind the camera.
Marks a stunning debut from writer-director Nia DaCosta.
A movie about tough women making tougher choices, director Nia DaCosta sets up a variety of harrowing sequences that let both actresses, and especially Thompson, shine.
Little Woods offers no glamor or pity, only empathy for those trapped in a system that gives them few choices.
The film has atmosphere and intensity to burn, but it also feels dwarfed by similar yet superior films.
In the film 'Little Woods', Tessa Thompson executes one of the best performances of her career.
DaCosta's meticulous work in laying out a socially conscious scenario in such a wildly entertaining way shines through.
DaCosta's powerful story is crafted such grace and care where her characters are dimensionally complex and the situation is on a grand scale that is both intense and grounded.
