The TV Guide - - MR TELLY -

Star­ring Rooney Mara, Ben Men­del­sohn. Direc­tor Bene­dict An­drews.

Un­com­fort­able tale in which a woman tracks down a man who sex­u­ally abused her when she was young. Mara and Men­del­sohn are tremen­dous with a twisted chem­istry which drives the story to a vaguely dis­ap­point­ing con­clu­sion. It is based on the play Black­bird by David Har­rower and is prob­a­bly best suited to the theatre rather than the screen ... prob­a­bly be­cause direc­tor Bene­dict An­drews doesn’t quite have the knack for the pac­ing that the story de­serves.
