Shadows in the Sun

Critics Consensus

Serene and slow-moving, this turgid, unimpressive and inconsequential British period piece lacks any real drama.

Audience Reviews for Shadows in the Sun

  • Sep 29, 2015
    Meditative family drama about healing old wounds as the family's matriarch is approaching her sunset. Jean Simmons, terribly feeble-she passed away less than a year after the film's release, gives a gentle but resolute performance. Nice that she could make her final bow above the title of a film that while it's not a masterpiece is a respectable showcase for her great often under-appreciated talent.
