Though stretched to a two-hour run time, Doctorow's socially critical tale is reduced to queasy spectacle.

Throughout, Chastain delivers a full-bodied debut performance, but she's ultimately stuck taking her wandering-soul protagonist far more seriously than it-or the film-deserves.
Jolene's skin may smell like warm milk to Brad, but to the rest of us it has curdled long before she leaves his bed.
They don't make movies like Jolene anymore, and that's a good thing.
More epic than it needs to be and less profound than it should be, Jolene remains a watchable excursion into human frailty and foibles.
