      Ed Potton Times (UK) It's a beguiling combination at first, but the surrounding story is too clunky, the revelations too telegraphed. Rated: 2/5 Mar 10, 2020 Full Review Charlotte O'Sullivan London Evening Standard Simply put, Michael and Mae don't get enough time to just be, though a sequel could fix that. Rated: 3/5 Mar 9, 2020 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) Luxuriantly sensual and unashamedly romantic, The Photograph is a cat's cradle of connecting love stories, spun across states, decades and continents. Rated: 3/5 Mar 9, 2020 Full Review Greg Carlson Vague Visages The appealing leads spark with genuine onscreen chemistry, and Meghie capitalizes on a terrific supporting cast to vividly render past and present in complementary balance. Sep 23, 2023 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut The Photograph is a gorgeous looking film about how life doesn’t always go as planned, love will endure even when relationships drift apart, and learning from a shared history doesn’t mean anything is set in stone. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 24, 2022 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies There’s a throwback romantic quality in Meghie’s use of the gaze that calls back to Bogart and Bacall, Tracy and Hepburn, MacMurray and Stanwyck. Rated: 4/5 Aug 24, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
