      Alice, Darling Reviews

      Take out all the red herrings in this 89-minute navel gaze, and you’re left with a 90s teen soap subplot featuring wholly unlikeable characters from stem to stern.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/5 | Feb 10, 2023

      The multi-talented Kendrick can't save this well-intended project from being a stultifying bore.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5 | Feb 5, 2023

      This movie would be a lot more relevant if it were a better film.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/5 | Jan 24, 2023

      A thriller without thrills. That is just deadly.

      Full Review | Jan 24, 2023

      “Alice, Darling” is clearly made with good intentions, but engaging storytelling needs more than that.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5 | Jan 21, 2023

      There’s some real possibility for a good movie in here, but it plays out more as a film of inaction.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/4 | Jan 21, 2023

      Kendrick's impressive and restrained central performance is bogged down by a barrage of clichés.

      Full Review | Jan 20, 2023

      What we are watching isn’t a story, merely a situation. And a highly unpleasant one at that.

      Full Review | Jan 19, 2023

      Kendrick looks suitably unhappy, and while you feel for her character, you mostly wish that this actress were in a better movie.

      Full Review | Jan 19, 2023

      As a chamber drama of a young women’s gradual liberation from psychological abuse, “Alice, Darling” carries emotional power, largely because of Kendrick’s outstanding performance; but it is not without serious flaws.

      Full Review | Original Score: C+ | Jan 19, 2023

      It’s a movie about a toxic relationship that digs into the harrowing psychological details of mental and verbal abuse without exploiting it. It’s also a single-minded PSA picture — indie portraiture with hardly any identifying details filled in.

      Full Review | Original Score: 5.8/10 | Jan 19, 2023

      Although Kendrick is the best thing about the movie, her contribution doesn’t elevate Alice, Darling to better than a streaming pick.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Jan 19, 2023

      Alice Darling’s over reliance on minimalism as a cinematic technique in turn minimalizes both the subject matter and it’s effect on the audience.

      Full Review | Original Score: C+ | Jan 19, 2023

      While Alice, Darling’s heart is always in the right place, this sleight character study struggles to unearth nuanced revelations from its potent subject matter.

      Full Review | Jan 19, 2023

      Alice, Darling deserves praise for emotional verisimilitude and shading. It’s just a shame that, in some of its packaging, it oversells a story worth hearing.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Jan 17, 2023

      There’s a powerful story in Alice, Darling, but the tired tropes it uses to tell the story grind it up to a halt.

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/10 | Jan 8, 2023

      Alanna Francis' screenplay struggles to find a story to attach to the character's own struggles.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Dec 30, 2022

      Alice, Darling addresses important themes but struggles as a complete narrative with significant pacing issues. Anna Kendrick captures the fraught paranoia, isolation, and dangerous physical decline of an emotionally abused woman.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5 | Dec 29, 2022

      Despite an effective performance from Kendrick and an important story about abusive relationships, director Mary Nighy chooses a path for her film that feels like an overcooked Afterschool Special.
