This is a subtle and beautiful film. Molly Parker's breakthrough role as a lead actress.
7 April 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Everything about Marion Bridge is subtle and beautiful. The script is spot-on about three sisters and I found myself enjoying how well the ensemble cast worked together. Unlike hollywood films, where the theme is usually beaten over your head, the movie speaks volumes in its silences and expressions. Molly Parker also proves that she can be a strong leading actress. I am excited about seeing her again.
