Reviews

The Playlist - Gregory Ellwood
Masterfully played by Annette Bening, Dorothea is a fascinating character of contradictions.

IndieWire - David Ehrlich
This is the rare movie that’s redeemed by its unchecked nostalgia.
83
The Film Stage - Nick Newman
If the screenplay’s sense of scale can begin to feel limited by an overfamiliarity in environment, it’s suddenly made expansive with the realization of how much these places are extensions of these five people’s lives and personalities.
80
The Hollywood Reporter - David Rooney
The sheer likability of these lived-in characters is a powerful magnet, thanks to insightful writing and a note-perfect ensemble anchored by a never-better Annette Bening.

The Guardian - Jordan Hoffman
For all of Mills’s cinematic tricks, he’s emerging as a great realist film-maker.
