Watching Todd Field's feature film debut `In the Bedroom,' I could not
but be impressed by the sheer audacity of the film, by the spot-on
performances, and by the many twists and turns that no critic should
Yet amidst all the film's obvious strengths, there was still something
missing-something to tie it all together, something to endow the film
more than just a fleeting impression.
Ironically perhaps, I was provided this missing bit of information not by
the film, but by a male audience member sitting at the end of my aisle,
trying to explain the point of the film in less than derogatory terms to
`You're missing the whole point of the film,' he said. `It was all about
men being controlled by women.'
No doubt he read this interpretation from someone else's review of the

It is quite possible that he was not even aware of the ramifications of
what he had said. But this man's legitimacy aside, his statement has not
left me since, and the film in turn has had the same luck in escaping
We are first introduced to Frank Fowler (Nick Stahl, `Bully') and Natalie

They are in love, though for Frank she is little more than a `summer
Meanwhile Natalie's ex-husband, Richard (William Mapother, `Mission:
Impossible 2'), is unwilling to let her out of his life, and begins to be
physically abusive to Frank.
Frank's parents, Matt (Tom Wilkinson, `The Full Monty') and Ruth (Sissy
Spacek, `The Straight Story')-both in top form here-show appropriate
for their only son, and they intervene in this dangerous love triangle
unexpected twists and tragic results.
The film jumps about in tone from a light romantic romp to a seeming
political treatise to a creepy, nocturnal thriller. Some have criticized
the film for this alleged inconsistency in tone, slow pacing, and a
deliberate ending. But these naysayers have overlooked the
Frank may not even really love Natalie, so much as he loves being
by her and sating his mother by being with her. Richard becomes a threat
everyone because he is unwilling to let Natalie consider him out of her
life; he is a slave to her whim. The resulting tension reveals a rift
between Frank's parents, and in particular, his father's actions in the
demonstrate a helpless allegiance to his wife and her command.
Field, who up until now has been primarily an actor (he was the piano
in `Eyes Wide Shut'), understands these important points but does not
the viewer over the head with them. He presents a reality more raw and
than any other piece of film in recent memory. Yet he does so with a
restraint that Hollywood seems to have forgotten. Most of the film's
violence is overheard or implied, and only explicitly shown when
for the audience to completely understand what has happened. This allows
for more subtle details, like a bridgekeeper who must run around in
to alternate traffic between the road and the sea, to emerge as truly
haunting, lasting images.
But `In the Bedroom' is not about any of these things. It is, first and
foremost, about its characters. It does not fall prey to plot mechanics,
nor does it flinch at exploring even the most sympathetic characters'
darkest sides. For this and so many other reasons which are best left
discussed behind closed doors between loved ones, `In the Bedroom'
at turning the camera on flawed relationships of all forms, and it is one
the best films of the year.
