Critic Reviews for Sulphur & White

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Movies have explored the long-term impact of abuse before... Yet none of these was hobbled by a central character who was, essentially, an unsympathetic arsehole.

It's hardly a major film, but that image really sticks.

An important story but doesn't leave a lasting impression.

A potent, valuable piece of work.

While not a barrel of laughs, Susie Farrell's sensitive screenplay has much to say about trauma, masculinity and the power of love.

Julian Jarrold's movie is well meant and well acted - with Mark Stanley as Tait, Emily Beecham as his wife, Vanessa, and Dougray Scott and Anna Friel as his parents - but there's not a great deal to be learnt from its broad-strokes account.
