Top Critic

Although Bad Hurt traffics in tough material, it is filled with little moments of heart.

February 12, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4

Although affecting and well acted, the family drama "Bad Hurt" is too airless and depressing to fully engage.

February 11, 2016 | Full Review…

Throughout, the filmmakers live up to the movie's title. But as the story comes to a close, they opt to wrap it in comforting cliché, and they turn a miserable but credible viewing experience into a confounding one.

February 11, 2016 | Full Review…

An explosive family drama whose intense performances can't always compensate for such a heavy-handed scenario, Bad Hurt nonetheless marks a promising directorial debut from playwright Mark Kemble.
