“Ron Howard’s horrendous adaptation is a staggeringly inauthentic attempt at cornpone melodrama that plays like this year’s Cats, except with screaming rednecks instead of singing strays. These characters aren’t inhabited so much as they are placed on display like zoo animals for further study. Whatever’s happening here, it isn’t empathy.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 11/24/2020
