Critic Reviews of "North Country"New YorkerOctober 24, 2005
You cannot help being stirred by the reach and depth, the constant rebuffs to sloppiness, of a strong ensemble.Rolling StoneOctober 22, 2005
Though the dirt and grime in North Country are artfully applied, it's purely cosmetic and skin-deep.Washington PostOctober 21, 2005
North Country does a good job in ratcheting up the tension and unfairness until the audience is brought to the breaking point.Toronto StarOctober 21, 2005
If there was ever any thought that perhaps Whale Rider was a fluke, North Country should erase all doubt.San Francisco ChronicleOctober 21, 2005
North Country delivers an emotional wallop and a couple of performances worthy of recognition come award time.Seattle TimesOctober 21, 2005
She's [Caro] got a good story to tell (based, loosely, on a real-life case), and a marvelous cast to help her tell it.Old School ReviewsJanuary 14, 2013
issue movie that blatantly examines power and sexual harassment in the workplaceComingSoon.netApril 20, 2011
North Country is the unfortunately overly-dramatized Hollywood version of a story that has a chance at being truly important and even uplifting, but thanks to extreme heavy-handedness, ends up being mostly shrill instead.Apollo GuideJuly 21, 2009
The road to cinematic hell is paved with this sort of banal effort borne of bland good expectations.Projection BoothApril 27, 2008
Would have you believe it's no more complex than a playground quarrel between boys, girls, and cooties.Film Journal InternationalMarch 01, 2007
While the performances are flawless, Michael Seitzman's screenplay is embarrassingly sophomoric, so much so that the film's denouement completely obliterates its feminist message.
