Critics reviews

Director Phil Morrison and screenwriter Angus MacLachlan crafted something so delicate that it was bound to be pushed aside by movies that bellow and bluster. Also a key reason for many viewers’ indifference: Junebug, which takes the deceptive form of a meet-the-parents narrative, is decidedly feminine—which is not, and should never be, a synonym for soft.
