My review of In the Fade, for The Tulsa Voice. Diane Kruger won Best Actress at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival for her portrayal of a widow/mother grieving the loss her husband and son to a terrorist bombing in Germany.
“Told in three chapters, In the Fade ratchets tension exponentially with each progressive act. The first follows familiar beats of homegrown terrorism and the devastating wake of loss, but the second act stages a riveting courtroom drama that is capped by a tense yet sobering third-act quasi-thriller.”
