Niagara Gazette —
“In Secret” is a compendium of rampant unhappiness and visual gloom. What gives the movie its strength is the superb acting from the entire cast. You are engaged by the characters. In his first feature as director, Charles Stratton, who also wrote the screenplay, doesn’t quite finesse his debut, he’s too fond of low light and shadows, but his film unreels as an interesting interpretation of Zola’s bleak romance.
