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

Despite solid performances by an excellent cast, the movie never really hits its stride. The film's basic premise -- a young married couple's attempts at coping with the disappearance of their child -- leads the protagonists to engage in an array of erratic and risky behavior, which, when taken collectively, verges on unbelievable if not ludicrous. Passing off a meandering narrative as sublime art just doesn't work here, no matter how good the acting and cinematography are.

This is extremely depressing and dark for the average viewer, and super indie; but the cinematography is awesome, and I enjoyed it, although it was admittedly depressing for my standards as well.
