Reviews


90
Variety - Peter Debruge
This splendid satire benefits...from “The Singer” director Giannoli’s gift for striking just the right tone with such tricky material.
90
Screen International - Lisa Nesselson
The bittersweet fact that money can buy many things but love and talent aren’t among them is explored with often-thrilling artistry in Marguerite.
83
The A.V. Club - Benjamin Mercer
A well-appointed period piece that nonetheless has no time for Midnight In Paris-style nostalgia.
80
The New York Times - Stephen Holden
Marguerite overstays its welcome by at least 20 minutes. What redeems it is Ms. Frot’s subtle, deeply compassionate portrayal of a rich, lonely woman clutching at an impossible dream until reality intrudes.
75
The Playlist - Kimber Myers
At 127 minutes, Giannoli’s script feels overlong and a bit repetitive in its heroine’s disastrous performances. Lucien, the critic who helps propel Marguerite and her story forward, disappears for a large chunk of the film, only to randomly appear toward the end. Other than these missteps, Marguerite is worth watching with a well-earned grimace, largely for Frot’s pitch-perfect performance.
