All Critics (21) | Top Critics (8)

It's a bold, significant piece of work: an investigative thriller with a grave finale that stuns you into silence, then, hopefully, something more.

It takes a remarkably assured artist to make all this work, and Fox is savvy about how she eases us into her complicated narrative.

It is truly hard to imagine more effective tinder to ignite a conversation than The Tale.

A film about memory: the way it distorts and omits, creating an imperfect record, sometimes to shelter us from the harsh reality of our pasts.

Top Critic

An immense, brave, and genuinely earth-shaking self-portrait that explores sexual assault with a degree of nuance and humility often missing from the current discourse.

January 22, 2018 | Rating: A | Full Review…

This is certainly not a film that everyone will be able to take, but it's rare to see a film that's this fearlessly confrontational and emotionally complex when it comes to the issues at play within it.
