    The premise... demands more heat and complexity than this hokey 2016 drama provides.

    New York Observer
    February 07, 2017

    Warm, heartfelt but decidedly wan.

    New York Times
    February 02, 2017

    The gently nostalgic mood and sleepy pacing effectively erase the movie's necessary edge.

    Village Voice

    Greenwald and cinematographer Wolfgang Held linger on the idyllic beauty of the salt marsh and trees draped with Spanish moss, using the vivid cerulean of native blue crabs to link her characters.

    Los Angeles Times

    There's a clumsy, soapy tepidness to the procession of plot points, but within individual scenes, the actors pierce the genteel surface.

    Maggie Greenwald's first adult-oriented feature since 'Songcatcher' is an affecting, rose-scented study of small-town prejudice and female friendship.

    An eloquent, and both captivating and terrifying story playing out on the eve of the US entry into WW II, the film connects the Jim Crow South, and racism against Japanese Americans. And women bonding together in crisis for better - and often much worse.

    The actors are so good that it doesn't even seem awkward when the film gives us a romantic angle between Nicholson's Sophie and the Japanese visitor.

    Paste Magazine

    Sophie and the Rising Sun is a movie caught halfway between wartime homeland drama and interracial romance, and not particularly satisfying as either.

    Movie Nation

    A WWII forbidden love romance that is unsurprising in the extreme, but made with more care than the material warranted.
