It's a bumpy film, and though no one may see it, it's impossible to imagine it playing as gracefully, like its effectively open-ended finale, without Janssen's conviction to her role.

A modest, grittily surfaced film that, while nothing earth-shaking, manages to hold your interest, despite its basic been-there/done-that premise.

We're left after this terse and anxious film knowing nothing more about the world than that Janssen looks cool bending over and glaring at the eight-ball

Turn the River, sometimes like Kailey herself and sometimes not, has a laudable habit of pulling back at the right moments and proving its mettle in unexpected ways.

Janssen, who reportedly did her own pool shooting, is [best] served in the scenes with Gulley, which are wrenching in a coolly understated way.

Turn the River lacks almost everything Eigeman has as a performer: charisma, wit and snappy delivery.

No glamorized games here, just a bleak look at a bleak story of a woman trying to crawl her way up from a life of limited options.

A well-acted, if not terribly well-crafted, character-driven drama without much in the way of a purpose.

It's not sharp or ironic, but drab and downbeat. Unfortunately, it's also going to feel utterly familiar to those who've seen their share of independent dramas in the last 15 years.
