  • The miscast (or misdirected) Hilary Swank's Jeanne takes so little pleasure in coquetry and manipulation. show more

  • The storytelling is hopelessly compromised by the movie's decision to sympathize with Jeanne. We can admire someone for daring to do the audacious, or pity someone for recklessly doing something stupid, but when a character commits an act of stupid audacity, the admiration and pity cancel each other, and we are left only with the possibility of farce. show more
