Chicago Tribune
A stirring, large-souled movie.
88
New York Post
Sobering and important.
75
Boorman treats this moving, important subject with restraint, tact, and candid views of horrors suffered by the nation.
63
Boorman's troubles usually come from going over the top (atop Exorcist II, there's always Zardoz). But this is one of his few misfires that almost anyone would call tepid.
63
There is something not quite right about the film itself.
63
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Although In My Country is charged with moments of grace and feeling, the film is ultimately betrayed by the clunky Jackson-Binoche romance.
58
Entertainment Weekly
In My Country doesn't so much explore as use the tragedy of black South Africa to give its heroine a righteous slap of nobility.
50
Lacks compelling narrative.
50
New York Daily News
Would be better if it weren't so preachy.
50
The Hollywood Reporter
The charisma and hard work by his two leads allows Boorman to succeed beyond all expectations.
10
Wall Street Journal
It's a bad idea done disastrously.
