  • Critic Reviews of "A Cry in the Dark"

    Chicago Reader
    December 19, 2011

    Streep's beauty and talent and director Fred Schepisi's intelligence are both shown to best advantage, without easy points or grandstanding.

    Los Angeles Times
    December 19, 2011

    Streep and Neill are the film's perfectly matched thoroughbreds. But the film is neither a double star turn nor the best kind of courtroom drama; it is a sort of epic mosaic of national character.

    Time Out
    January 26, 2006

    Streep (the best thing she has done in ages) carries it along.

    New York Times
    August 30, 2004

    Streep ... plays Lindy Chamberlain with the kind of virtuosity that seems to redefine the possibilities of screen acting.

    Washington Post
    January 01, 2000

    Streep -- yes, with another perfect accent -- brings her customary skillfulness to the part. It's not a showy performance, but the heroine's internal struggle seems to come from the actress' pores.

    Chicago Sun-Times
    January 01, 2000

    Streep's performance is risky, and masterful.

    Empire Magazine
    December 19, 2011

    The powerful performances and sharp script augment this revealing human drama.

    June 30, 2005

    Meryl Streep gives another stellar performance in this fact-based Australian drama about a working class woman accused of killing her daughter.

    Nick's Flick Picks
    September 25, 2004

    Admirably off-putting performance by Streep in a reasonably involving Australian court drama.

    F5 (Wichita, KS)
    July 08, 2004

    Remarkably even-handed; Streep's much-touted performance distracts.

    March 04, 2004

    Streep is a sensation....haunting stuff

    TV Guide
    July 30, 2003

    A poignant family-in-crisis drama aided by spectacular performances from Streep and Neill.
