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.

A profoundly unnecessary movie with pretty good performances; perfectly captures the noble mediocrity of the novel.

The fairly simple storyline...is certainly stretched quite thin over the two hour running time.

An emotionally effecting drama about one woman's difficult journey into forgiving and making peace with herself.

For those who crave intelligent 'mom in trouble' dramas.

Defying every pitfall and eclipsing everything else in the film, Sigourney Weaver delivers a bravura portrait of a complex woman falsely accused of child abuse.

A sincere film, but strangely uninvolving.

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