Los Angeles Times - Michael Rechtshaffen
While time inevitably marches on, director Roger Mainwood has a splendid constant at his disposal in the pitch-perfect voice performances of Blethyn and Broadbent, who inhabit their hand-drawn characters with a vivid, fully-dimensional authenticity.

The Hollywood Reporter - Leslie Felperin
It’s commonly thought that artists seldom make stories about happy, stable marriages because where’s the drama in that? Ethel & Ernest, a deeply affecting feature-length animated film, disproves that assumption by unfurling an emotionally rich story about the lifelong marital love affair between two kindly, modest people living in an inconspicuous corner of suburban England.

Screen International - Charles Gant
Ethel & Ernest is, at its heart, a fond character study.

Time Out - Cath Clarke
The animation is beautifully old-fashioned.

The Telegraph - Tim Robey
The backdrop to this very English marriage – soot and grit and survival, and that basenote of touching bafflement – means all the tears are earned.
