ReelViews for movies starring 'Haley Lu Richardson'
With a smart, perceptive script and an arresting lead performance by Hailee Steinfeld, the film rises to the top of a crowded genre.
Worth a look if you’re interested in seeing Regina Hall at her best but don’t expect a lot beyond the one great performance.
The problem isn’t the emotional manipulation but the clumsy way in which the movie orchestrates its third act.
Despite being blessed with well-designed period sets and top-tier acting, this collaboration between writer Julian Fellowes and director Michael Engler is dramatically inert.
The narrative is choppy, the tension is less pervasive than it should be, and there’s no ending.
