We gave it a B-

Fine work by the always reliable Linney and a movingly ragged Byrne can?t quite pull this muddle of a morality tale, Jindabyne together. When a group of fishermen find a murdered aboriginal girl, the decision to wait to report it reverberates through their marriages and their Australian town. The tense opening sets the viewer up for a murder mystery?which saps some strength from the meditation on secrets and death that follows. EXTRAS No commentary, but a makingof in which a sunny Linney marvels about shooting a movie with no artificial lighting. B?
