Critic Reviews for The Green
Bare-budget drama of gay male couple whose "accepted" existence in a small Connecticut town gets overturned when the teacher half is accused of impropriety.
Three-fifths of a good movie -- a generally well sketched drama that fumbles away its accrued admiration late in the third act, with a twist that feels like a sop to audiences of small screen procedurals.
Audience Reviews for The Green
It's never a good sign for a movie when you like the supporting cast more than the lead but that was the case for me here. Good actors Illeana Douglas, Karen Young and Cheyenne Jackson are given too little screen time and not much too work with, the same is true of Julia Ormond but she does register more strongly than the rest. The lead character is poorly defined and often acts in a manner that is overly naive and at times downright stupid.
