Critic Reviews for Sophie and the Rising Sun

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (4)

  • The premise... demands more heat and complexity than this hokey 2016 drama provides.

    February 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Warm, heartfelt but decidedly wan.

    February 7, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The gently nostalgic mood and sleepy pacing effectively erase the movie's necessary edge.

    February 2, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Greenwald and cinematographer Wolfgang Held linger on the idyllic beauty of the salt marsh and trees draped with Spanish moss, using the vivid cerulean of native blue crabs to link her characters.

    February 1, 2017 | Full Review…
  • There's a clumsy, soapy tepidness to the procession of plot points, but within individual scenes, the actors pierce the genteel surface.

    January 26, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Maggie Greenwald's first adult-oriented feature since 'Songcatcher' is an affecting, rose-scented study of small-town prejudice and female friendship.
