      Alice, Darling Reviews

      Alice, Darling does so much right that it is acutely painful when it goes wrong.

      Full Review | Jan 30, 2023

      Kendrick’s performance is one of the strongest aspects of Alice, Darling.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Jan 25, 2023

      It’s a believable portrayal of the impact of gaslighting and brainwashing: Alice’s conviction that she’s at fault will resonate with many audiences.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Jan 24, 2023

      Alice, Darling remains striking, however, thanks to how subtly Alanna Francis’s screenplay presents the warning signs of Simon’s behaviour.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Jan 23, 2023

      What’s impressive about this psychological thriller, the debut feature film from director Mary Nighy, is how tuned in it is to the dynamics of female friendship.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Jan 23, 2023

      Alice, Darling could do with a proper third act, and first-time director Mary Nighy, looking for fresh angles in her lake location, doesn’t always find them. But, if you can manage your expectations, the film is abundantly rewarding...

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Jan 20, 2023

      “Alice, Darling” [is] unusual and worthy. And for the movie’s star, it’s a reminder that, in the words of St. Stephen, she’s still here – and she can do just about anything.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Jan 20, 2023

      A riveting Anna Kendrick brings her own experience with a psychologically abusive relationship to this tale of a young woman who learns to stand her non-violent ground against a male predator through female friendship. The result is quietly devastating.

      Full Review | Jan 20, 2023

      With unbridled moxie, the film proposes that there are few things more nourishing for female friendship than cinnamon buns, healthy flab and ditching your phone.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Jan 20, 2023

      Kendrick's performance sticks with you.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | 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

      It takes audiences deep into the experience of a traumatic relationship with compassion, understanding and well-placed anger, and yet leaves you with one wish for Alice: the space to breathe.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Jan 19, 2023

      An understated but compelling look at coercive control, toxic relationships and healing friendships, with perhaps a career-best performance from Kendrick.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | 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

      Tension abounds, but director Mary Nighy grants space for these women to discover what they mean to each other now, in the present.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Jan 19, 2023

      Nighy gets the most essential thing right, authentically capturing a not-uncommon real-life experience with rare nuance. Kendrick gives one of her best and most wrenching performances as a woman riddled with self-doubt.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Jan 19, 2023

      Well, it’s a very strong performance from Kendrick, who disturbingly conveys the tiny and not so tiny symptoms of emotional abuse.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | 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

      A bit obvious and mannered, but it’s so rare to see these kinds of abusive relationships, the kind that leave mental scars, not physical ones, depicted on screen with such a searing sense of authenticity that it eclipses the faults of the screenplay.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Jan 19, 2023

      It’s hardly an easy watch, but there’s a relevant, resonating and necessary film here.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Jan 18, 2023

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
