Movie Info

Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin' is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a "good girl" as an example of the miracle of the church. However, Darlin' holds a secret darker than the "sins" she is threatened with, and she is not traveling alone. The Woman, equally fierce and feral, who raised her is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.

Critic Reviews for Darlin'

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (6)

Taking a harrowing Jack Ketchum adaptation and injecting humor into it is a challenge, one that McIntosh isn't quite equipped to handle in this wildly uneven film.

Polly McIntosh does indeed have what it takes to one day make a solidly entertaining and dramatically satisfying film, even if she hasn't quite done that here.

July 12, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"Darlin' " may not be as stomach-turning as "The Woman..." but McIntosh understands the strength of this strange series, which is all about how humanity is inherently savage and clannish, no matter how well-groomed and well-mannered we may seem.

Its content grows so tonally awry that by the end, you're not sure to what extent McIntosh is serious or joking - nor is there much indication that she knows, either.

A film that ultimately feels static and unresolved.

An imperfect movie, but I admire McIntosh's go-for-broke style and the ambition of this project, one that reminded me of George A. Romero in the way it tries to blend social commentary, pitch-black humor, and a heavy dose of bloody make-up.
