Critic Reviews for We Have Always Lived in the Castle
The film adaptation of We Have Always Lived in the Castle understands Shirley Jackson's novel as a tale of male abuse and female rage.June 14, 2019 | Full Review…
Emotionally high-stakes drama.May 17, 2019 | Full Review…
Passon makes the creepy stuff too low-key, less a case of building dread than growing impatience.
Allows Passon to work with a larger, more complex canvas while still displaying her intuitive understanding of women seeking to overthrow repression and societal expectation.
The movie, though, which was adapted by Mark Kruger, is all surface polish and play-acted oddness, from the cloying symmetry of the stalely composed shots to the cartoonish depiction of some awfully complicated - nigh perverse - family relationships.
Under Stacie Passon's precise direction, this gothic fable of isolation and violence expertly treads a fine line between tragedy and camp.
Audience Reviews for We Have Always Lived in the Castle
Dec 18, 2019I genuinely like all four of the core cast members of We Have Always Lived in the Castle especially Daddario, and they're all good in this, and there are a couple of scenes here with genuine tension, but the reality is that by the end of movie, I'd spent half of the runtime straight-up bored.Gimly M Super Reviewer
