Every Secret Thing | Review

11 May 2015 6:15 AM, PDT

Director Amy J. Berg's (West Of Memphis, Deliver Us From Evil) first foray into the world of fiction, Every Secret Thing evolves into a confounding rat's nest of differing perspectives. Adapted from Laura Lippman's 2004 novel by Nicole Holofcener, the film closely analyzes Alice and Ronnie's personalities, providing us with subtle clues about their motivations. While the "truth" is a bit too blurred to allow for much sense to be made of the meandering narrative, Every Secret Thing works best as an examination of the intense competition between the two girls, and how Alice's mother harmfully exasperates the situation. »
