      Philip De Semlyen Time Out A taut historical thriller, bathed in muted, Rembrant-esque lighting and filled with viperish conspiracies and courtly colour. It’s hampered by a pedestrian script and an improbable ending, but always catches fire when the supercharged Law is on screen. Rated: 3/5 May 25, 2023 Full Review Peter Howell Toronto Star Splendidly visceral revisionist history... Rated: 3/4 May 25, 2023 Full Review Rafaela Sales Ross Little White Lies What is surprising is how little of Aïnouz’s nuanced sensibility is present in his newest, a film floating in the aimless limbo of characterless. May 24, 2023 Full Review Anna Miller Filmotomy Firebrand drags its feet, stumbling around the decision to either retell the historical events as we know it, fill in the blanks from what's missing from the history books, or completely turn the film into an ultra modern feminist “you go girl” flick... Rated: 3/5 Aug 14, 2023 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix Good acting from Alicia Vikander and Jude Law can't save Firebrand from its plodding screenplay and lackluster direction. This revisionist drama, about the British royal family in the 1540s, distorts feminism by turning the film into a man-hating lecture. Jul 8, 2023 Full Review Jason Adams My New Plaid Pants Lush and lavish and darkly devastating... a quietly compelling tale of agency dashed upon the rocks Jun 29, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
