FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
Sweet Virginia is a dragging dramatic thriller that doesn’t quite hit all the right notes. While the story has some missed opportunities thanks to underdeveloped characters, the interesting premise, cinematography and gripping lead performances make this film a sweet, albeit slow, burn.
