All Critics (13) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (1)

  • "The Girl in the Book" proves to be anything but a page-turner.

    December 10, 2015 | Full Review…
  • From time to time, Cohn allows a few rays of light to penetrate the gloom and suggest that Alice may find a way transcend her despair. It's a small measure of relief from the overall mood of hopelessness.

    December 10, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The director, Ms. Cohn, making her feature debut, wrote the script and handily keeps the story's many elements in motion.

    December 10, 2015 | Full Review…
  • VanCamp gives a layered, memorable performance, while writer/director Marya Cohn, making her feature debut, has crafted a nonlinear story that artfully tiptoes between cliche and truth.

    December 10, 2015 | Rating: 4/5
  • Though its resolution is a bit pat, most of "The Girl in the Book" is a smart and pointed look at abuses of power and roles women too often play in the literary world.

    December 10, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • As Alice, VanCamp is exceptional, eliciting our sympathy even when the character is making maddeningly self-destructive decisions.

    December 10, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
