Critic Reviews for The Secret Rapture

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Hare's language isn't unduly concentrated or poetic for the theatre, but on screen it cries out for naturalistic dilution to disguise its purposefulness -- the way characters expose their conflict with no loss of time.

November 14, 2017 | Full Review…

The Secret Rapture joins Hare's puzzling, often dazzling, cinematic oeuvre... And, like most of his work, it is hauntingly elusive.

December 6, 2017 | Full Review…

A keenly realized portrait of sibling rivalry, mean-spirited capitalism, and unflinching morality.
