German star Koch (The Lives of Others) has a Burton-lite intensity, with Julia Ormond well cast as his wife and Beth's mother.

The lack of subtlety makes the story's familiar beats only more obvious.

A startling performace from Findlay doesn't quite make up for a disappointing third act.

There are dimensions to Emelia that are welcome, but often rudely condensed by director Niall McCormick, who burns through the picture in 85 minutes, never lingering long enough on domestic tension or behavioral awareness.

Beautifully filmed and acted, but lacking a central perspective.

A serving of teenage angst with a side order of syrup which, like the films of John Hughes, treats both characters and audience with respect and affection.

Charmingly low-key, the British coming-of-age drama "Albatross" offsets slack plotting with creative casting and sensitive performances.

Albatross shifts from indie fairy tale to farce, only to accept its fate as a coming-of-age melodrama.

Yes, the title of Albatross is a metaphor. In fact, the eponymous bird shows up not as a figurative chokehold around the neck of simply one character, but at least three.

The performances are compelling (although Jones is underused) but the thin narrative is less instructive of the strange way female friendships operate than of the way stories get recycled.

Newcomer Brown Findlay brings some laughs and energy to an otherwise predictable tale of family strife that is modestly compelling but ultimately forgettable.

Innocence is lost -- as well as 90 minutes of your precious, precious time.
