Thou Wast Mild and LovelyWhen Akin arrives at the farm, he finds his job. Bored and driven by sinister urges, Samantha, the daughter of his employer makes eyes at Aiken while he works the field; as he slips away to masturbate, images of her scowling presence flit through his consciousness. Therefore, Akin's interactions with the father and daughter become awful.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Thou Wast Mild and Lovely"Hollywood ReporterFebruary 04, 2015
It's not uninteresting but too self-consciously arty to rank Decker as a mature filmmaking voice.New York TimesNovember 13, 2014
Ms. Decker especially likes to cut away from a shot just as or before it catches an actor's glance (or catches our eye). It's a device that risks growing mannered.AV ClubNovember 13, 2014
Traub's Sarah is fascinating, with an almost feral sexuality that makes her the most crucial component of the movie.Village VoiceNovember 11, 2014
Our glimpses of what's already occurred and what will soon come are vivid and impressionistic, prophetic warnings about which everyone seems powerless to do anything other than silently observe.indieWireNovember 04, 2014
Decker concocts a wholly enveloping vision of isolation told with a grimly poetic style that wanders all over the place but never stops playing by its own eerie rulebook.New YorkerNovember 04, 2014
Like most classic stories, this one is simple, but its realization is so surprising in its details, so original in its visual invention, as to make most other movies seem (at least temporarily) shot by the numbers.The Film StageFebruary 26, 2016
The things she puts onscreen make you fear what's to come and yet you find yourself craving it as much as the characters do.Screen InternationalFebruary 04, 2015
The film delivers an intriguing slant on rural-peril convention, even if it never completely remaps the old weird territory.The Arts DeskFebruary 04, 2015
Thou Wast Mild and Lovely is as horrible as it is beautiful and that's just grand.Los Angeles Daily NewsFebruary 03, 2015
Decker's Thou Wast Mild & Lovely is certainly unique, if a kinda sorta sex thriller made in a nature-lovin', oddly edited, narratively dithering Terrence Malick manner counts as unusual.Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)November 24, 2014
Josephine Decker's dreamlike quasi-thriller of primitive psychology and goatish sexuality offers a setup that suggests 'The Postman Always Rings Twice' as filtered through Terrence Malick, but then proceeds at its own off-step pace.The DissolveNovember 17, 2014
Its connections run shallow, and most of its action-particularly in the over-the-top third act-feels spectacularly unearned.
