      Audience Member I've seen this movie twice. It's a quiet film about a family. Strong performances from all of the actors.

It gently unfolded, with wonderful acting and atmosphere. Very skillful directing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Leisurely-paced melodrama with good ensemble acting. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A well done psychological portrait of a wounded family. The deepest secret still had to be hypothesized and is not overtly stated. Beautifully acted. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I actually liked this movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Peter Howell Toronto Star A carefully drawn portrait of family life. Rated: 3/5 Apr 18, 2003 Full Review Janice Page Boston Globe A respectable addition to the tragic three sisters oeuvre. Rated: 3/4 Apr 18, 2003 Full Review Rick Groen Globe and Mail Always engaging and often compelling. Rated: 3/4 Apr 18, 2003 Full Review Brian Gibson Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Alberta) Too many scenes are colourless and unimaginative...There's a gap between the pedestrianism of life and the necessary dramatic tension of art [that] this film never bridges. Dec 1, 2003 Full Review Louis B. Hobson Jam! Movies Given Marion Bridge trots out almost every cliche of the chick flick, it is all the more remarkable that it works as well as it does. Rated: 3/5 Apr 18, 2003 Full Review Liz Braun Jam! Movies You'll like it because it's really intelligent. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 18, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews
