  • Presumably a glib attack on sanctimonious small-town religious hypocrisy informed by Black's own strict Mormon upbringing, the film is tonally all over the place, eventually settling in a rut that comes a lot closer to resembling bad camp than edgy satire. show more

  • Connelly, Harris and Amy Madigan, as Tipton's devastated wife, all do their best to bring a measure of soul to Black's creations, but there's something fundamentally synthetic about Virginia, which lays bare its influences without doing much to reanimate them. show more

  • Virginia is like a box full of someone's long ago summer vacation keepsakes: pretty, but representative of memories and meaning no one else will be able to grasp. show more

    Great concept. Just not well thought out and poorly executed. Poor use of some really great actors. Felt like a 13 year old wrote a short story for English class. Characters were weak. Story line wandered. Weak ending. Like it was rushed to *********.
