Metacritic Score

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times Robert Abele

    The trouble is, director Wayne Blair's perfunctorily handled adaptation of Dalia Sofer's 2008 novel is long on cardboard characterizations and short on genuine tension.

  • 30

    The New York Times Ken Jaworowski

    It's a movie whose good heart is outweighed by its heavy hand.

  • 20

    The Guardian Jordan Hoffman

    This lifeless, by-the-numbers production is an excruciating exercise in cliche and tedium. Its sole joy is in trying to figure out which of its leads is overacting most.
