Critic Reviews of "Jolene"Los Angeles TimesNovember 04, 2010
More epic than it needs to be and less profound than it should be, "Jolene" remains a watchable excursion into human frailty and foibles.Seattle TimesNovember 04, 2010
Chastain proves near-heroic embodying Jolene's innate strength and incremental wisdom. Yet she also makes us understand how the heroine's wobbly resistance to manipulative characters is overwhelmed time and again.New York PostOctober 29, 2010
So bad it's almost (but not quite) good, Dan Ireland's Jolene is an unusually elaborate and excruciatingly long vanity production...New York TimesOctober 29, 2010
Ms. Chastain digs deep. Surrendering to her character's smoky voice-over and disastrous judgment, the actress finds pockets of soul in a role that's part Jessica Rabbit, part Marilyn Monroe.New York ObserverOctober 27, 2010
The movie has been through as many hurdles getting here as dear, sweet Jolene, but sometimes the most engaging movies are the ones worth waiting for.Time OutOctober 27, 2010
One minute a guy's making Jolene patently false promises, the next she's getting sodomized on her wedding night.BrianOrndorf.comMay 03, 2011
Cruelly, the display of sorrow never takes command, with most of the film an unsatisfactory soap opera that never seizes an illuminating essence.About.comNovember 21, 2010
Chastain has long red hair, wide eyes, and an even wider smile. She is Jolene, of course, and she is appealing.Film Journal InternationalNovember 01, 2010
Based on an E.L. Doctorow short story, Jolene is an apt example of how stories about women who are in abusive relationships can be turned into sexual exploitation.NYC Movie GuruOctober 31, 2010
Vapid, convoluted, tedious and too episodic despite Jessica Chastain's charismatic performance as the seductive, wounded, insecure and lonely Jolene.Slant MagazineOctober 31, 2010
Jolene's main themes, including the manipulation of youth, the fragility of love, and the suppression of individuality, try to carry the wonky dialogue into complex territory.MovielineOctober 28, 2010
Chastain, an incandescent redhead with a heart-shaped face and round, shining eyes, does more justice to the part than it deserves.
