Critic Reviews for The Secret Rapture

All Critics (4)

The Secret Rapture joins Hare's puzzling, often dazzling, cinematic oeuvre... And, like most of his work, it is hauntingly elusive.

Dec 6, 2017 | Full Review…

Hare's language isn't unduly concentrated or poetic for the theatre, but on screen it cries out for naturalistic dilution to disguise its purposefulness -- the way characters expose their conflict with no loss of time.

Nov 14, 2017 | Full Review…

A keenly realized portrait of sibling rivalry, mean-spirited capitalism, and unflinching morality.
