A rather silly, unbelievable thriller.
Filmmaker Nadda's stock-in-trade is restraint, but October Gale builds up to nothing much.
October Gale is a quiet thriller set in the wilds of Georgian Bay. It's an uneven movie with some odd jolts in the story, but the performances -- especially from Patricia Clarkson -- are noteworthy.
Writer-director Ruba Nadda is wonderful at building up suspense for the first half of her latest film. But once she's got our attention, she has nowhere to go with it.
A film that begins as a languorous study in grieving and shifts with screeching abruptness into a crime thriller.
The best parts of this tepid thriller, which seems designed to actually lower audience's heart rates, arrive before the plot kicks in.
When I wasn't laughing at the absurdity of where things go I was bored out of my mind waiting for long silent stares hiding nothing to finally turn into action.
A great performance by Patricia Clarkson - so what else is new? - can't save this strange thriller.
October Gale is a pleasant place to visit, though a dull, predictable movie to watch.
... eventually ditches its character-driven approach in favor of far-fetched plot twists and melodramatic contrivances.
[Clarkson and Speedman's] strong performances carry the viewer over any narrative bald patches to a sudden and yet satisfying conclusion.
Patricia Clarkson keeps 'October Gale' from completely sinking.
