      Critics Consensus

      While it's far from a feelgood drama, the well-acted Castle in the Ground approaches addiction with admirable honesty.

      Becca James Chicago Reader Castle in the Ground is a somber, if not sober, look at the bleak reality of the opioid epidemic... Dec 30, 2020 Full Review Christy Lemire FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) I liked this. It is unrelentingly bleak, but it is very well acted. May 15, 2020 Full Review Tomris Laffly RogerEbert.com Wolff gives the material his all. If only his efforts could compensate for the film's gradual descent into banality. Rated: 2/4 May 15, 2020 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse An up-close-and-personal look at a very large issue. It offers no solutions or searing insight as to how the opioid problem spun so far out of control. Instead, it is simply a well-made and well-acted look at life in a time of personal crisis. Rated: 3.5/5 Jan 30, 2021 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix Castle in the Ground (written and directed by Joey Klein) is not an innovative or particularly well-paced film, but a nuanced performance by Alex Wolff makes the movie worth a look for people who are interested in seeing yet another 'wasted youth' story. Jul 18, 2020 Full Review Steven Prokopy Third Coast Review Castle in the Ground is an exhausting, believable tale of lives in decline Rated: 3/4 May 24, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Sad and kinda jumbled . I’m sure it’s a bit realistic but I didn’t enjoy really any of it if we’re being honest but as always alex was great 2.1 Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/31/22 Full Review Audience Member Solid acting, not much depth or plot, doesn't seem like a lot happens. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review scott m Story about drug addiction. Not really that new, but I enjoyed it a lot because of Imogen Poots. The woman should be cast in more lead roles. She carries movies. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member tragic but amazing to see Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Castle in the Ground suffers from the common problem with most ambitious films these days of having a solid cast with strong performers, but a script that descends into a messy hole of nothingness, and leaves the viewer confused and unfulfilled. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Great flick and loved every second of it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
