Critic Reviews for The World Made Straight
The film illustrates how the most powerful and welcome stabilizing forces in human life - history, family, geography - can turn so easily into deadly traps.
A strong sense of place emerges, if not a consuming narrative, as the filmmaker strains to connect a 1970s coming-of-age story to historical records and bigger thematic arcs - namely, bloodlines and bloodshed in a rural community.
The performances are strong... and Earle is particularly memorable. The film glows with a dark energy when he's on screen. But it's too long, has a musical soundtrack that's often intrusive, and sometimes sags when it should be taut with tension
Jeremy Irvine is the sympathetic focus, but it's Noah Wyle who holds the movie together, as a former teacher who lost his job through a malicious student's prank.
Audience Reviews for The World Made Straight
Sort of interesting take on post-Civil War feuds in the South, but it doesn't really go anywhere.
