      Critics Consensus

      The Secret Scripture has acclaimed source material and a well-chosen cast in its corner, but despite its stars' valiant efforts, this adaptation was better left on the page.

      Stephen Romei The Australian This is a honourable film that has hits and misses. Watch it for the performances, particularly Redgrave's. Its most telling line is this: Bravery in the face of the enemy Rated: 3/5 Dec 8, 2017 Full Review Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald The Secret Scripture is a highly streamlined adaptation of Sebastian Barry's 2008 Man Booker finalist. Rated: 4/5 Dec 8, 2017 Full Review Josh Slater-Williams Little White Lies Its lack of nuance and persistent plotting issues frequently undermine much of the potential emotional heft. Rated: 2/5 May 19, 2017 Full Review Tom Cassidy Common Sense Media Adapted from an award-winning novel that no doubt gave the time and space for its characters to breathe, the movie fails to give any emotional weight to those on screen. Rated: 2/5 Dec 2, 2021 Full Review Tom Bond One Room With A View In the end the plot falls back on melodramatic clichés of forbidden love. Rated: 3/5 Mar 5, 2019 Full Review Stephen Saito Moveable Fest In even the smallest expressions of this freedom, whether it's a rare grin from Mara or Redgrave playing a few bars of "Moonlight Sonata," "The Secret Scripture" soars.
