      With a heartbreaking story brought powerfully to life by Brendan Fraser's starring performance, The Whale's as hard to watch as it is to look away from.

      Udita Jhunjhunwala Livemint Charlie [is] played brilliantly by Brendan Fraser... Jun 2, 2023 Full Review Jenny Nulf Austin Chronicle There’s nothing consciously sinister about THE WHALE’s use of Charlie’s eating disorder (the original play was, in fact, written from experience), but Aronofsky’s adaptation is cruel, not just to Charlie’s character, but to all of them. Rated: 2/5 Feb 21, 2023 Full Review Wenlei Ma News.com.au It’s such a heavy-handed approach that The Whale’s extremity risks alienating the audience from the intention. Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 6, 2023 Full Review Sarah Vincent Sarah G Vincent Views “The Whale” works because Fraser, particularly his eyes and voice, and the rest of the cast deliver performances that imbue their two-dimensional characters with enough presence and emotion that they feel three dimensional. Jun 8, 2024 Full Review Soham Gadre Vague Visages Fraser keeps Charlie’s fully formed humanity at the forefront of The Whale, despite various filmmaking decisions that could flatten his character into a saccharine pity case. Jan 9, 2024 Full Review Prabhjot Bains Tilt Magazine It’s Aronofsky’s most blunt and uninspired work yet— an indulgent and strident slice of misery porn that rides a wave of unearned emotion to its underwhelming conclusion.

      Nick Brendan Frasers performance is lives up to the hype. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/15/23 Full Review Jim P It was a great movie as far as the content.. We feel the language could have been cleaned up and it would have still been a great movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/28/23 Full Review Andrea Spectacular film that took us through a range of emotions for full depth of the human experience. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/24/23 Full Review Leo The 'Whale' was fabulous. Acting by alll characters was well done. Story line touching and deeply analyzes dysfunctional familly.
