The movie followed the book closely without sacrificing any of the key elements. Very well acted and beautiful setting. I also appreciated no gore or foul language.

If you didn't read the book like I didn't, then the ending will be great. Kept me guessing. Good movie.

While the ending is surprising, it leaves some plot holes between the end of the trial and the end of the movie.

Don’t read about this movie before you go because you will miss the “wow” fun part of you know too much about what is going to happen, so save it to be able to enjoy the surprise!

Does the fact the film largely ignores the book’s treatise on nature and virtue absolve it of all connections to Owens’s real-life controversies? It certainly doesn’t, on an artistic level, improve what’s already contained on the page. Newman’s vision of rural South Carolina is scrubbed so clean you might as well call it #swampcore – the Spanish moss looks bright and pristine, the flower petals on the water almost consciously arranged.

Director Olivia Newman (First Match) bathes the story in so many broad, creaky tropes and odd tonal shifts that nothing ever feels real for a moment.

Instead of a complicated protagonist at the centre of an atmospheric thriller Edgar-Jones seems trapped in an ill-advised antebellum-themed Taylor Swift music video, exacerbated further by Swift’s dulcet tones heard over the end credits.
