Sigourney Weaver dominates with her powerful performance but the film, a feature debut from theater director Scott Elliott, is so poorly conceived and staged that much of the emotional impact gets lost

Cast somewhat against type, Sigourney Weaver is terrific even if the film is a bit staid.

May be too painful and downbeat for many moviegoers. But it redefines courage in acting.

In a time when Hollywood usually gets a woman's life all wrong, A Map of the World, with more than its share of true moments, somehow gets it right.
Steven Boone

Much of A Map of the World is comparable to the work of Fritz Lang, Paul Schrader or any other filmmaker skilled at evoking panic and self-loathing.
Ted Murphy

Acclaimed stage director Scott Elliot makes an auspicious debut behind the camera.

An accomplished film that continually takes us beyond our first impressions of people and situations.

Worth navigating for its refusal to play to the crowd. There's certainly nothing safe or sweet about Weaver's performance.
