A frustrating film full of many wonderful parts that the filmmaker ultimately betrays.
Polley not only speaks volumes with her wary, hooded eyes and closed body language, she provides the silent emotion anchor the movie badly needs.
Sarah Polley gives a wonderfully searching performance, as a woman in a state of extreme isolation.
Can a single scene save a movie? An hour and 20 minutes into The Secret Life of Words, Sarah Polley delivers a halting, evocative 10-minute monologue that finally unlocks the mystery behind her guarded character.
The Secret Life of Words transcends the limitations of its pat two-character-play core, becoming a deeply affecting existential drama about the healing power of communally felt pain.
