"Smart and subtle"

Janet Smith of Vancouver's reviews The River King, criticising the film's supernatural elements and credibility, but appreciates the quality of the acting:

The students’ love triangle is echoed by another, more adult one: blue-collar Abel falls for a sophisticated photography teacher, Betsy (the smart and subtle Jennifer Ehle), who’s engaged to one of her more tight-assed colleagues.
Still, the film has a strong cast that plumbs psychological and emotional truths you don’t usually find in a murder mystery. They’re so natural, it makes you wonder if they could have done without the supernatural.
