      Bill Weber Slant Magazine That Hamilton Woman gains much from Leigh's playfulness and placid beauty. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 8, 2009 Full Review Elena de la Torre Cine-Mundial Korda is one of the best cinematographic directors and the movie is of a high artistic quality. [Full review in Spanish] Sep 18, 2019 Full Review MFB Critics Monthly Film Bulletin The film has many dramatic moments and is a very appropriate production at this time. Jan 23, 2018 Full Review James Kendrick Q Network Film Desk Leigh and Olivier translate their real-life passion to celluloid, making it curiously difficult to discern what was performed and was simply there Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 22, 2009 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid Not only does Leigh look outrageously beautiful, but she seems to be radiating sheer, undiluted adoration and desire through her eyes, voice and movements, perfectly received and matched by Olivier. Sep 10, 2009 Full Review Sean Axmaker Seanax.com ... the most gracefully directed and dramatically engaging film from British film impresario Korda, who generally directed like a producer.

      Steve D Leigh's work keeps it afloat. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/14/24 Full Review Fountain B Loved the acting, and the dialogues. Learnt about history, and can't wait to watch it again. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/26/23 Full Review william d Other than the Battle of Trafalgar I'm not familiar with the events depicted here, so I don't know how accurate the movie is. All I know is that this is an excellent historical drama starring two of the greatest actors of all time, Leigh and Olivier. What more could you want? Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Very beautiful movie! Leigh and Olivier are breathtaking and their characters reflect the real love they held for one another. I highly recommend seeing this movie at least once. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member One of my favourites of all time! Both brilliant and a fascinating sad story! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member It was captivating, especially the part with those fine chickens.
