Critic Reviews of "The World Made Straight"Tirdad Derakhshani Philadelphia InquirerJanuary 13, 2015
The film illustrates how the most powerful and welcome stabilizing forces in human life - history, family, geography - can turn so easily into deadly traps.Sheri Linden Los Angeles TimesJanuary 08, 2015
A strong sense of place emerges, if not a consuming narrative, as the filmmaker strains to connect a 1970s coming-of-age story to historical records and bigger thematic arcs - namely, bloodlines and bloodshed in a rural community.Ben Kenigsberg New York TimesJanuary 08, 2015
An overcooked adaptation of a novel by Ron Rash.Cary Darling Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.comJanuary 08, 2015
The performances are strong... and Earle is particularly memorable. The film glows with a dark energy when he's on screen. But it's too long, has a musical soundtrack that's often intrusive, and sometimes sags when it should be taut with tensionMick LaSalle San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 08, 2015
Jeremy Irvine is the sympathetic focus, but it's Noah Wyle who holds the movie together, as a former teacher who lost his job through a malicious student's prank.Frank Scheck Hollywood ReporterJanuary 07, 2015
Fine performances compensate for the overwrought elements of this rural-set drama.Mark Jackson Epoch TimesJune 06, 2016
The Civil War was about the South not wanting to give up its slaves. Now it won't give up its drugs. 'Rednecks and drugs: one of the worst hookups of the '60s.'Charles Martin FILMINK (Australia)July 23, 2015
The film's story is a simple one, which makes its two-hour running time absolutely confounding.Sandie Angulo Chen Common Sense MediaJanuary 12, 2015
Mature coming-of-age adaptation has violence, drugs.Paul Chambers Movie ChambersJanuary 11, 2015
Yes, this is one of those low-budget gems you're always hearing about. Sub-par production values, certainly. But an intriguing story with excellent acting.Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue.comJanuary 09, 2015
There's an authenticity to the characters and the atmosphere in this deliberately paced drama.Vadim Rizov The DissolveJanuary 09, 2015
For all the good intentions and native hands behind the camera, The World Set Straight never seems particularly credible or convincing as a fresh look at regional history.
