The Playlist - Kevin Jagernauth
It’s the kind of smoothly rounded, edgeless historical drama that’s built for maximum appeal, with a broad perspective and an easy to digest tone. Well-crafted and ably told, this is a film that’s wholly respectable though not particularly memorable, but still manages to connect with its earnest good intentions and desire to please.
Screen International - Allan Hunter
Woman Walks Ahead is a story of defying expectations, finding common ground and gaining knowledge.
The Guardian - Peter Bradshaw
Woman Walks Ahead is a solidly crafted and well shot, if basically unchallenging film.
The A.V. Club - Katie Rife
Despite the sensitivity of its storytelling, and Chastain’s career-defining passion for playing headstrong, independent women like Mrs. Weldon, it also never really comes to life.
The Hollywood Reporter - Todd McCarthy
Despite the estimable talent on hand both behind and in front of the camera, the story never comes to convincing life and doesn’t, in the end, have anywhere particularly surprising or interesting to go.
