  • Under McGowan's restrained direction, "Rust Creek" is an impressive example of good storytelling overriding budget and star power.

  • A modest but involving rural-captivity tale.

    January 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Director Jen McGowan and screenwriter Julie Lipson take too leisurely of an approach to a story that should be more taut, but the attention they pay to characters and setting makes a difference in how the movie plays out.

    January 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Although there are times when the story meanders, two aspects remain strong throughout: the committed performance by lead actress Hermione Corfield and the vivid images captured by the lens of cinematographer Michelle Lawler.

    January 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Screenwriter Julie Lipson's well-written, naturalistic dialogue helps pass the time, as does Michelle Lawler's lovely scenic cinematography.

  • I found myself more invested in the ins and outs of the drug trade in Kentucky than the plight of the woman who got stuck in it.
