  • Far from the uplifting sports pictures churned out by Disney, White Palms wallows instead in humiliation rituals, psychic scars and too much time-shifting.

    June 23, 2007 | Rating: 3/6 | Full Review…
  • The term 'sports film' doesn't do justice to White Palms, a punishing, beautiful drama about a troubled 30-something Hungarian gymnast.

    June 20, 2007 | Rating: 4/5
  • The more riveting, grim storyline ... is seen in flashback to the early 1980s, as tween Miklos lives like his parents' show pony in an anxiety nightmare of nonstop humiliation, heightened here through haunting soundscapes.

    June 20, 2007 | Full Review…
  • An uncommonly resonant sports drama in which a talented yet troubled gymnast comes to terms with a turbulent past, White Palms proves a distinctive and absorbing third feature by Szabolcs Hajdu.

    June 19, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Striking, deeply felt drama.

    November 9, 2006
  • Delivers all the familiar pleasures of a based-on-a-true-story sports drama.
