Critic Reviews of "A Cry in the Dark"Chicago ReaderDecember 19, 2011
Streep's beauty and talent and director Fred Schepisi's intelligence are both shown to best advantage, without easy points or grandstanding.Los Angeles TimesDecember 19, 2011
Streep and Neill are the film's perfectly matched thoroughbreds. But the film is neither a double star turn nor the best kind of courtroom drama; it is a sort of epic mosaic of national character.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Streep (the best thing she has done in ages) carries it along.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
Streep ... plays Lindy Chamberlain with the kind of virtuosity that seems to redefine the possibilities of screen acting.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Streep -- yes, with another perfect accent -- brings her customary skillfulness to the part. It's not a showy performance, but the heroine's internal struggle seems to come from the actress' pores.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Streep's performance is risky, and masterful.Empire MagazineDecember 19, 2011
The powerful performances and sharp script augment this revealing human drama.EmanuelLevy.ComJune 30, 2005
Meryl Streep gives another stellar performance in this fact-based Australian drama about a working class woman accused of killing her daughter.Nick's Flick PicksSeptember 25, 2004
Admirably off-putting performance by Streep in a reasonably involving Australian court drama.F5 (Wichita, KS)July 08, 2004
Remarkably even-handed; Streep's much-touted performance distracts.MovieholeMarch 04, 2004
Streep is a sensation....haunting stuffTV GuideJuly 30, 2003
A poignant family-in-crisis drama aided by spectacular performances from Streep and Neill.
