The filmmaking is sure-handed, the performances authentic.

Wilson and Wilde have a light touch that makes them perfect for the comedies they often make. Here, Morano leads them to much darker places, and they plunge right in.

A film with two very strong central performances from a pair of underrated actors that falters by being so self-aware of the tortured existence it's attempting to capture.

Reed Morano, an accomplished cinematographer making her directorial debut, does a fine job hewing to her uncoiling characters like a shroud, and her actors are up to the task.

The setup is a scriptwriting gimme - if your central couple lose a child, practically any subsequent behavior is justifiable - but the actors sell what they're given quite effectively.

The leads make unbearable pain bearable to watch - Wilson is the sympathetic everyman once again, while Wilde displays depths of feeling she's rarely gotten the chance to exhibit before.

Audience Reviews for Meadowland

Olivia Wilde is superb as a wife dealing with the loss of a child. This shows the very real downward spiral that deep trauma can cause. It also deals with how it can tear a family apart and lead the to question their own morals to find who they really are.
