  • Oscar-winner William Hurt stars in this drama as an ex-con who seeks redemption and reconciliation after he serves his six-year sentence. He contemplates returning to an old love (Maria Bello), and along the way he meets an angst-ridden teenager (TWILIGHT's Kristen Stewart) and the young man (SAVAGE GRACE's Eddie Redmayne) she rides with, and the three form an interesting bond. THE YELLOW HANDKERCHIEF arrives with a fine pedigree; it was directed by Udayan Prasad (MY SON THE FANATIC), produced by Arthur Cohn (CENTRAL STATION), and shot by Chris Menges (NOTES ON A SCANDAL).

  • Critic Reviews
    "[A] gentle, low-key road movie, centering on the eternal need to love and to trust, suffused in the humanist spirit that has won its veteran producer, Arthur Cohn, three Oscars."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Mr. Hurt adopts a Kentucky accent for the role, and in certain shots his face reveals a flinty exterior of a hard-bitten Southern loner....Mr. Hurt gives a meticulously detailed performance..."
    New York Times

    3 star out of 5 -- "[T]he romantic drama earns solid marks for atmosphere, moving shots of post-Katrina New Orleans and acting..."
    Box Office

    3 stars out of 4 -- "William Hurt occupies the silent center of the film....Stewart is, quite simply, a wonderful actress."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[H]ere the fascination is Hurt....He guides his young costars safely out of sap's way..." -- Grade: B-
