You simply don't know how you're going to handle a situation until you are in it; until you've dug yourself a grave you can't get out of. In God's Creatures, this inquiry, and the way it forces the audience to look at themselves as harshly as its characters, is not only the film's sturdy foundation but its greatest emotional asset.

Total Film - Neil Smith
Atlantic cod and oyster beds provide a pungent backdrop for this effective fillet of atmospheric psychological drama.

The Film Stage - Rory O'Connor
Making every moment grim is to risk over-saturation, but Davis and Holmer’s deft direction keeps things compelling here, skilfully leaving plenty of things unsaid and with the confidence to allow key events to happen offscreen or in the margins.

The Hollywood Reporter - David Rooney
The evocative sense of a place frozen in time and the raw feelings behind the family dynamic ultimately carry the film

Screen Daily - Fionnuala Halligan
Emily Watson leads the cast delivering, yet again, a stinging reminder of her talent.
