Audience Reviews for Sweet Virginia

  • Oct 24, 2018
    Bernthal is one of those character actors that deserves these central roles, he tends to be relegated to supporting roles which is okay but not great. This plays out like a good old fashioned film noir and sadly it does not go very well for all the characters involved. Indie crime films tend to be missed by the masses, unlike indie comedy which can garner more interest. This is a great film and the filmmakers are to be watch carefully as this demonstrates a rising talent to watch. Abbott has been garnering a lot of interest since The Sinner and he is the unpredictable bad guy here, he never wastes a single scene. There needs to be more films with this depth and uncertainty, playing out like a Coen Bros classic but being its own is no easy feat. 24/10/2018.

    A murderer-for-hire stews at a motel while he awaits payment for a job. At the motel the manager was having an affair with one of the victims. The assassin and manager strike an uneasy relationship. The two are tortured souls who are destined towards reckoning. The movie is a beautifully photographed, moody story that favors style over substance.
