Critic Reviews for White Rabbit

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

While it has some good performances and noble intentions, it doesn't really bring anything new to the conversation and ultimately fails to give viewers any compelling reason to wade through all the bleakness and misery that it has to offer.

February 13, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It sometimes reads as a cheap, sleazy horror film, but its heart seems to be in the right place.

February 13, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Neither screenwriter Anthony Di Pietro or director Tim McCann ("Desolation Angels") has a sure grasp of this uneasy mix of nature and nurture.

February 13, 2015 | Full Review…

All too much of Tim McCann's drama about this disturbed loner comes to feel like a checklist of warning signs.

February 12, 2015 | Full Review…

First-time screenwriter Anthony Di Pietro pulls off a couple of nice character reversals.

February 12, 2015 | Full Review…

"White Rabbit" is a deeply unpleasant viewing experience.

Audience Reviews for White Rabbit

Coming of Age films are among my favorite types of movies, but if you're a fan of the genre, you know there are often a lot of strange stories out there, perhaps none stranger than White Rabbit. This film follows Harlon Mckay (Nick Krause), who is a very strange kid, one that is often bullied. Harlon is very easily influenced by other people, as is evident by the scenes with his co-stars. When he's with his best friend, whose immature, they do kid things, and when he meets a bad girl, who doesn't stay in on place very long, Harlon gets into some trouble himself. There's no doubt that Harlon is strange, but so are the circumstances surrounding him. Newcomer Nick Krause plays the troubled lead and he really was terrific. In ninety minutes, this kid must of changed personalities a dozen times, and all of them were tremendous. White Rabbit is very weird, a little creepy, and nothing special until a shocking ending changes everything. Sometimes how you see a film can be changed by an ending that just blows the mind and answers a million questions at once. That is what happens here, and that is the only reason I recommend watching this film. As I've been saying, it's really strange and some parts are hard to sit through, but in the end, you'll be left thinking about what you just saw and wondering about each and every scene. Honestly, it's the kind of film you really need to see more than once if you're hoping to catch everything.
