Drama - A very well acted, but also VERY SLOW and somewhat depressing story. It is very realistic in its portrayal of a greiving family. It will likely appeal only to adults.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Excellent "The uncoagulated anguish of parents mourning the death of a child has rarely been more powerfully depicted than in the collected vignettes of grief, rage, and retribution that make up the riveting domestic drama In the Bedroom.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Excellent "In the Bedroom is the kind of motion picture that it's almost impossible to forget. It has an impact that stays with the viewer long after the theater has been vacated - this is a hallmark of a powerful movie. It epitomizes what an American independent film can be when the director is willing to abandon the safety net.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Excellent "In the Bedroom is the first film directed by Todd Field, an actor ("Eyes Wide Shut," "The Haunting"), and is one of the best-directed films this year.  It works with indirection; the events on the screen are markers for secret events in the hearts of the characters, and the deepest insight is revealed, in a way, only in the last shot.  Every performance has perfect tone.. ''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Excellent "Positioned for award consideration after months of positive buzz on the festival circuit, Bedroom succeeds with performances that get some of their power from imaginative casting.  It's tough to recall such a potent screen treatment of the inability to grieve in a small town.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These types of movies is where our moviegoer opinions can really help save you some time and money. The critics LOVE "In the Bedroom." This will persuade many of you to see this movie. THE CRITICS ARE WAY OFF! These are THE worst opinions I've ever seen, especially for a mainstream movie.

People were so disappointed as they left the theater filling out their questionnaire. Many commented to me how bad the movie was. Just take a look at all the negative comments they wrote. Sure, there were a few good things about the movie, like the exceptional acting, but the story itself was just slow and boring plus very sad and depressing. The director was obviously going for realism, which doesn't always translate into an interesting movie.

One thing I noticed about the opinions is that there was no opinions of "Fantastic," which is extremely rare. So, even those that enjoyed it didn't think it was as good as the critics indicated it was.

All I can say is if your taste in movies usually runs close to that of critics then you will probably enjoy this movie. Everyone else should save their money.
