Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Drawing skillfully on a first-rate cast, Redford builds a riveting, resonant political thriller that values the complexity of its characters and the intelligence of its audience.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 04.05.2013
This film, with its prickly characters and complicated plot, rips along with continuous tension and power.David Denby, New Yorker, 04.15.2013
Nearly every scene had me asking questions about what just transpired when I should have been absorbing what was happening next.Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, 04.10.2013
The high celebrity quotient tends to work against the drama, reminding us what a privileged generation this was and how its endless examination of itself in popular culture was part of that privilege.J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 04.18.2013
