    • Excerpt: The film never veers into wink-wink self-consciousness that its opening might have suggested.

    • Excerpt: The way Mary Margaret’s old waders hold this little town’s history is an ingenious device and Harpswell, Maine, standing in for the fictional Easter Cove, couldn’t be more steeped in Downeast.
  • [New] | Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: The filmmakers breathe new life into an otherwise familiar setup.
  • [New] | MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: Quietly savage, weirdly funny, this feminist take on crime noir is ferocious in a way that only slowly reveals itself. Conflict and compassion wax and wane in a mystery that isn’t quite what it seems.
  • Charlie Juihl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: This Maine seaport set crime noir is far too linear and no-nonsense to spur much mystery. The biggest twist is there isn’t one.
