Michelle Williams plays an absolutey fascinating character. I found the whole story to be true to real life and a parallel of the real life struggles of so many in our country.

What happens to Wendy -- and to Lucy -- matters a lot, which is to say that Wendy and Lucy, for all its modesty, matters a lot too. Full Review
An evocative film with a believable and subtly enthralling lead performance that gets deeply under your skin. Full Review
The transformation undergone by Michelle Williams to play this role is nothing short of astounding. Full Review

In a minimalist film of muted emotions, Michelle Williams gives as lovely a performance as a moviegoer could ask for. Full Review
