(Newser) – French thriller Tell No One has the critics rushing to tell the world how much they liked it. The fast-paced and thickly plotted adaptation of a novel by American writer Harlan Coben is "hot-blooded, haunting and packed with the pleasures of the unexpected," writes Peter Travers in Rolling Stone.

The "sensational yet self-effacing" cast is packed with French stars along with internationally known Kristin Scott-Thomas, "as magnetic speaking French as she is speaking English," writes Joe Morgenstern in the Wall Street Journal. Tell No One is a genre film at heart, Geoff Berkshire writes for Metromix, but one so well-executed that "you'll leave wondering why Hollywood can't seem to make a romantic thriller so simply satisfying."
