“Grief is quite clearly the central theme of Chorus, and the film portrays two people gripped with guilt, anger and sadness at the loss of their child. Loneliness and isolation pervade the universe of the film, the characters drifting and barely connecting with the world around them.”
“Director Mitchell works his settings to the fullest, whether it’s the perceived isolation of a beach, a seemingly safe school or the inevitable, claustrophobic moment of domesticity.”
“Much like Polanski, the Keelings don’t rely on cheap gags to convey horror, as The House on Pine Street succeeds through outstanding cinematography and the refined acting of Emily Goss.”
The Overnighters isn’t a film specifically about about the trials and tribulations of Pastor Jay Reinke; it’s about Americans trying to get by in the unlikeliest of places.
