A film that, at best, seems like one of those cliched life-lesson movies on the Lifetime channel.
With solid performances and a sensitive screenplay, The Valley offers a window overlooking a heartbreakingly common situation whose signs and symptoms remain elusive.
As an awareness tool, "The Valley" feels simple-minded. As a drama, it feels exploitative.
Tackling teen suicide in a film requires a deft touch, but "The Valley" approaches the weighty topic with a heavy, sluggish hand.
Kariat has touched upon important themes - the immigrant experience, ageism in tech, the performance of traditional family roles, and the toll of depression - but the way she has combined them too often feels slapdash.
The Valley gets at the angst of high tech with an almost burning acuteness.
Teen suicide drama aims for parental prevention.
The Valley gets at the angst of high tech with an almost burning acuteness, with the constant work and the price of it as alienation at home.
The Valley is a pretty hard watch...That said, The Valley is still one I would recommend viewing. Though this subject has been tackled numerous times, the story stays in motion and drops enough mystery.
While the filmmaker is asking the right questions when it comes to teen suicides, but the manner in which she says it is not that interesting.
Suchitra Pillai to tries gamely to get the nuances of her role right but is let down by the see-saw writing. Agneeta Thacker as Maya is consistent in some scenes but looks clueless in other.
A hammy and facile family drama in the TV-movie-of-the-week mode.
