Critic Reviews for Rosie
A quietly, gradually heartbreaking portrait of regular people coping with a desperate situation...
Any moment of unbridled joy seems destined to be shattered by an unfortunate turn of events. That being said, the family dynamic is full of love and tenderness, and it is to the film's credit that it is at pains to avoid any accusations of miserabilism.
Rosie may not be very original, but the message of this film is important, and in delivery it is warm, urgent and terribly affecting.
Filmed in long takes with handheld cameras, the movie creates urgency from uncertainty: it's not the kind of movie where people deliver long monologues about bad luck and overwhelmed social services, because no one has the time.
A modest, social realist drama, its air of familiarity does not diminish its impact as a heartbreaker.
