Gyllenhaal shines in gritty, haunting drug drama.

April 29, 2009
Maggie Gyllenhaal's performance is wonderful, diving into this character that has barely anything worth sympathizing with...
April 19, 2009
"Sherrybaby" is an insightful and penetrating drama that never condescends or sentimentalizes its subject. Maggie Gyllenhaal gives a tour de force performance that is not to be missed.

...generally manages to overcome its almost egregiously familiar sensibilities to become an entertaining (yet hopelessly uneven) piece of work.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

You'd swear Maggie Gyllenhaal grew up on the streets after seeing her in this gritty indie about a recovering heroin addict trying to go straight.

Just as she did in the dark, sadomasochistic comedy "Secretary," Gyllenhaal raises her share of eyebrows here, though for a whole host of different reasons.

A raw, startlingly honest central performance from Gyllenhaal.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
March 1, 2007
Maggie Gyllenhaal plays the part with raw conviction and she is ably supported by a well-chosen cast.
February 6, 2007
A bittersweet tale of human failings and redemption which ought to establish Gyllenhaal as one of the best actresses around.

January 26, 2007
The film itself is a collection of emotional highs and mostly lows for Gyllenhaal, who elevates it all far above the slim story.

It's the movie for you if you liked the pessimistic street view of Half Nelson.

January 18, 2007
Watching Maggie Gyllenhaal's bare body and battered soul in Laurie Collyer's quietly extraordinary Sherrybaby, you almost get a sense that the actress knows the load that was her star-making turn in Secretary ...
January 11, 2007
Like Vera Farmiga in DOWN TO THE BONE, Gyllenhaal creates a full-bodied portrait of a woman struggling with addictions. And like Felicity Huffman in TRANSAMERICA, Gyllenhaal elevates a flawed motion picture to a higher level.

Gyllenhaal couldn't be better in service of a film that seems to focus on the wrong character; the more interesting point of view would be Bobby's, a gallant, unglamorous guy who's trying to hold his family together in the midst of Hurricane Sherry.

The writing and directing by Laurie Collyer express an admirable naturalness and eschews rose-tinted solutions.

December 24, 2006
Gyllenhaal cria uma personagem complexa e real cujos acertos nos fazem torcer por seu sucesso e erros nos levam a lamentar por seu sofrimento. Além disso, Danny Trejo finalmente tem a chance de mostrar sua versatilidade, saindo-se excepcionalmente bem.
| Original Score: 4/5

If it weren't for the nudity, I would have thought I was watching a Lifetime for Women TV movie.

October 4, 2006
As an actress, Ms. Gyllenhaal seems to steer clear of any parts that seek to exploit an audience's weakness for conventionally happy endings. Her films are therefore always worth seeing.
