Reviews


100
New York Magazine (Vulture) - David Edelstein
Jenkins’ writing underlines the fundamental instability at the heart of all our lives, while proposing that most universal of remedies: empathy, love.
91
IndieWire - David Ehrlich
Crucially, these characters are so believable that every scene has an internal logic and justifies itself.
87
Paste Magazine - Tim Grierson
Giamatti gives one of his surest, simplest performances in quite a while, playing a supportive husband who, we suspect, may not be quite as gung-ho about conceiving as his wife is. And while Carter is very good as a young woman trying to find herself—full of youthful enthusiasm but also provocation—Private Life is mostly a glorious showcase for Hahn.
83
The Film Stage - Jordan Raup
A generous, graceful, full-hearted drama about the complexities of desiring a child when your physiology denies you at every turn.
80
Time Out - Joshua Rothkopf
The riskiness of [Jenkins'] set-up, one that blooms with complications and rawness, is a thing of adventurous beauty. Her film is a gift to those people who discretely flinch at every dinner party and kid-celebratory anecdote.
