Critic Reviews for Gwen

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (7)

Writer-director William McGregor's debut feature film, "Gwen," has the eerie quiet and grim portent of a supernatural horror story, but it's a genre picture more in form than content.

Imagine Thomas Hardy with more jump scares and you've basically got it.

This is not social realism in the style of Ken Loach, but it is a film with a strong sense of outrage.
