Critic Reviews for What She Knew
The acting is uniformly on a high level. Tamblyn is impressive, and Swinton, as usual, is outstanding.
Apart from Swinton's fine performance, what largely distinguishes this is Brougher's sharp narrative focus.
A movie that can wound you.
To see Tamblyn's work here, to see her character almost simultaneously embody pain, terror, anguish, embarrassment, regret and just about any emotion you can think of, is to watch the kind of acting the medium exists to provide.
Audience Reviews for What She Knew
Very well done movie. I felt a lot of sympathy for what Stephanie must have been through and the consequences of her actions. Tidla Swinton is also very good in this.
There are films that you watch for sheer entertainment. One's that afford you an hour and a half of escapism, returning you safely to reality with a happy conclusion and the rolling of the credits. This is not one of those films. Stephanie Daley is a snippet of adolescent reality presented without embellishment or agenda. It's exceptionally written, superbly cast and, due to it's content, damn hard to watch.
Different than what I was thinking it was going to be like, but it was still good. Plus, I enjoyed watching the confused looks on the people that went with me. They didn't like the ending. FUNNY! Love Amber, so that also counted for a lot.
