  • Release & Reception

    In Secret received mixed reviews. On review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds a 40% rating, with an average score of 5.5/10, based on reviews from 87 critics. The consensus states: “Although it benefits from a strong cast, In Secret’s stars can’t totally compensate for the movie’s sodden pacing and overly familiar story.”

    Despite mixed reviews, Lange’s performance has received critical acclaim. Avi Offer from NYC Movie Guru proclaimed Lange as “…one of the greatest actresses of our time, [who] delivers a mesmerizing, magnificent performance and sinks her teeth into her role quite smoothly.” David Lee Dallas from Slant Magazine called Lange’s character’s “latent severity dangerous and surprising.” Michael O’Sullivan from The Washington Post noted that “Subtlety may not be this film’s strong suit, but it certainly is Lange’s.” Dustin Putman of the Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association felt Lange is “more achingly vulnerable than the figures she usually plays.” Jessica Herdon of Associated Press added that Lange “…going from agonized to helpless, so poignantly that your heart breaks for her.” Joshua Rothkopf from Time Out New York wrote: “…Jessica Lange, as rare as a unicorn these days, seizes on the role of a grieving mother with two taloned hands. If there are any tremors of shame to be felt here, they emanate from her.” Odie Henderson praises Lange on her ability to “…[find] the perfect line of lunacy to toe, which In Secret requires for her character’s arc…” Also, Emma Myers from Film Comment described her ability to “[maintain] a looming presence that shifts from despicable to sympathetic and back again.” USA Today described her work as her “…most fully dimensional performance.” Variety mentioned that Lange “…relishes what becomes the most dramatically potent role.”
