Critics reviews

The rekindled relationship turns out to be a go-nowhere plot strand, but it’s no more tiresome than the rest of the visually inert Courted, a drama superficially engaged with issues of perception (mainly via lots of judgmental chatter about how people are dressed) while proving primarily concerned with having numerous figures explain, in great detail, the logistics of the French legal system. It’s an informational civics lesson masquerading as an actual movie.
