VARIETY: 'WANDER DARKLY': FILM REVIEW 

AMY NICHOLSON, JANUARY 2020

WRITER-DIRECTOR TARA MIELE'S SLIPPERY DRAMA KEEPS THE AUDIENCE UNSTEADY ON THEIR FEET.

ROGEREBERT.COM: SUNDANCE 2020: WANDER DARKLY, DINNER IN AMERICA 

BRIAN TALLERICO, JANUARY 2020

MIELE DIRECTS HER TWO LEADS TO EXCELLENT PERFORMANCES AND SHE'S WILLING TO TAKE RISKS AS A FILMMAKER THAT MAKE THIS ONE OF THE MORE PROMISING DRAMAS THAT I'VE SEEN AT THIS YEAR'S FESTIVAL.

PARADE MAGAZINE: LAURA SLADE WIGGINS TALKS THINSPIRATION, STARVING IN SUBURBIA, & SHAMELESS

WALL STREET JOURNAL: LOVE, FRIENDSHIP, AND CHEATING HEARTS

DOROTHY RABINOWITZ June 2013

 

"...A WORD FOR "GONE MISSING," ONE IN A LONG LINE OF FILMS ABOUT MISSING TEENAGE DAUGHTERS AND THE MOTHERS WHO GO SEARCHING FOR THEM -- IN THIS INSTANCE, ONE POWERED BY A FINE PERFORMANCE BY DAPHNE ZUNIGA IN THE ROLE OF A TERRIFIED MOTHER.  A PERFORMANCE THAT SUCCEEDS IN TRANSMITTING THE FORCE OF THE HARROWING FEAR, THE WORKINGS OF UNBEARABLE IMAGINATION THAT COME WITH SUCH AN EXPERIENCE..." 

 

FILM THREAT: 2011 PHOENIX FILM FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS 

PAUL OSBORNE MARCH 2011

 

"...THE LAKE EFFECT (IS) A WELL-ACTED AND TERRIFICALY REALIZED RELATIONSHIP DRAMEDY ABOUT A GUY WHO'S MID-LIFE CRISIS FORCES HIM TO FINALLY GROW UP.  I FOUND IT TO BE EERILY RELATABLE MOVIE FOR ME - ALMOST TOO RELATABLE. (THIS FLICK WOULD TAKE THE BEST ENSEMBLE ACTING AND BEST SCREENPLAY AWARDS THAT NIGHT.  AFTER SEEING IT, NEITHER WIN WAS A SURPRISE.)"



 

M LIVE: REVIEW: 'LAKE EFFECT" FINDS SURPRISING DEPTH 

JAMES SANFORD MAY 2011

 

"...SOME TYPICALLY RAVISHING MICHIGAN LAKEHORE SUNSETS PROVIDE A PEACEFUL VISUAL COUNTERPOINT TO THE EMOTIONAL STORM THAT'S BREWING IN "THE LAKE EFFECT," A WELL-ACTED, CRISPLY PHOTOGRAPHED DRAMA ABOUT PEOPLE STRUGGLING WITH THE ROLES LIFE HAS HANDED THEM..."
