Storyline

After 4 years, Clifford Harnish returns to his hometown of Pocahontas, Virginia, hoping to save his family and make for himself the happy childhood he never had.

Soon Cliff decides to take matters into his own hands, using the methods he learned while traipsing the country with Neo-Nazis. Adapted from the play "Home Fires Burning."

An intense, thrilling drama!
20 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Turning is about a disturbed young man who returns home after four years to try and save his parents marriage. He grows increasingly violent, and people begin to wonder where exactly he has been for the last four years...

I know that many people don't like this movie, but I found it quite intense, and even scary at times! Michael Dolan, Tess Harper, Karen Allen, Raymond J. Barry, and Gillian Anderson all give exceptional performances. Many people see this film just for Gillian Anderson's semi-nude scene, but the movie is much, much more than that! If you happen to come across this one, please, give it a try!

Rated: R for language, disturbing situations, and brief sexuality.

Grade: C+
