Where Are My Children? Directed by Phillips Smalley, Lois Weber

Critics reviews

Even as the director herself stars as the wife imperiled by a vagrant, SUSPENSE registers more as an affirmation of the patriarchy than a tribute to Weber’s multi-faceted talent. The sexual politics of WHERE ARE MY CHILDREN? Are, if anything, more regressive, but shrouded in so many deflections and submerged assumptions to make the film continually fascinating and strange.
