Critic Reviews for Little Woods
It's the kind of scenario we've often seen on screen, but the ambience is new and precisely evoked as a world of cruel contrasts.
It's a testament to the strength of Thompson's performance, and DaCosta's control of tone and action, that for all the bleakness of this world, we keep watching.
If this is [DaCosta's] starting line, imagine what she'll be able to do once she hits her stride.
[DaCosta] intuitively reveals a deeper dimension to both of her heroines by taking an extra beat at the beginning or end of scenes to observe their faces when no one else is watching.
This startlingly accomplished debut feature by Nia DaCosta has the eyes and ears of a documentary-the opioid crisis is everywhere, the nearest hospital is far away-but the heart of a drama, and a stirring one.
