      Critics Consensus

      A talented onscreen ensemble is done no favors by The Kindness of Strangers, which searches for meaning and comes up empty.

      Nell Minow AWFJ.org Zoe Kazan gives a luminous performance in a story about the transformative impact of kindness and forgiveness Oct 14, 2021 Full Review Tomris Laffly RogerEbert.com A syrupy brew thick with twee and an abundance of cringe-inducing moments pulling at heartstrings. Rated: 1.5/4 Feb 14, 2020 Full Review Monica Castillo TheWrap The movie functions like one of those star-studded Garry Marshall ensemble movies but made terribly sad until the last few minutes, when a tacked-on happy ending arrives in time for the credits. Feb 14, 2020 Full Review Loren King AWFJ.org The glum, disparate stories never gel into a satisfying whole. Scherfig is entitled to a misfire when she's a filmmaker of skill and sensitivity; I'm looking forward to what she does next. Oct 14, 2021 Full Review Sandie Angulo Chen AWFJ.org This isn't my favorite Lone Scherfig drama (that remains An Education), but she still knows how to draw out nuanced performances. Oct 14, 2021 Full Review Cate Marquis AWFJ.org Audiences who like neat, tidy narratives might not like this film but its big-hearted sympathy for people on the margins of society and hope-filled belief in the power of kindness will win others over...
