Critic Reviews for Sweet Jane

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • Smartly uses a minimalist, edgy, Wim Wenders-style score to communicate the emptiness of a life doomed to be cut short.

Audience Reviews for Sweet Jane

  • Apr 09, 2007
    Also known as <i>Lepers</i> in some countries, <i>Sweet Jane</i> is a fairly ordinary story about drug addiction, prostitution and HIV/AIDS, brought to life by a superb performance by Samantha Mathis (<i>Pump Up The Volume</i>, <i>American Psycho</i>) and equally capable support by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. <p>Plainly directed and with a dowdy color scheme, the film succeeds in its first hour at showing a descent into a kind of hell on earth, before turning into a mawkish and sentimental movie-of-the-week in the final 25 minutes. The ending is also a little overplayed, though does allow for some nice symmetry and some beautiful photography.
