    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The tone is both satiric and serious, zany but heartfelt, and for a while - maybe 20 minutes - all seems well. show more

    Tamara Drewe is so light, it's almost pure froth. show more

    The story's literary underpinnings are hilariously represented by the denizens of a seedy writers' retreat situated near Tamara's old house, which she has come back to reclaim after her mother's death. show more

    Poor. Two dimensonal, unlikeable characters. Plot holes. Appears to have been produced by drama students with more theory than ability.
