Girl in the Park, The


USA 2007, 105 minutes
Dir. David Auburn
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama

Topics: Mid-life.


Aroview: In playwright David Auburn's directorial debut a deeply afflicted woman faces the possibility that her daughter, missing for 16 years, has resurfaced.

Her carefully constructed isolation begins to crumble, and a desperate longing to displace her loss begins to eclipse rationality. The film's premise draws comparison to the masterful DON'T LOOK NOW, but discards the 'supernatural', leaving, supposedly, a 'thriller'. Unfortunately, Weaver's performance cannot be described as either super, natural, or thrilling, failing to connect with what could have been an emotionally charged portrait.
