Never obtains the full impact of its potentially powerful inner core. The emotionally scabrous lead perfs by Laura Linney and Gabriel Byrne, however, provide genuine substance for director Ray Lawrence's third film..

Impeccably acted and its narrative progression superbly managed by Lawrence: for over two hours, I was on the edge of my seat...

Jindabyne, is accomplished and impressive but if it has a frustration, it's that finally it is less than it seems...
