We will especially highlight the reviews focusing on Rachel’s performance. It’s too early to tell right now what the general consensus is, but the performances and in particular Rachel’s performance has received praise after the initial reactions. With The Guardian critic calling Rachel’s work “excellent” and Roger Ebert’s critic calling it “some of [her] best work”. Be sure to check back later, because we expect more reviews getting released throughout the day/week. The movie currently holds a 100% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes (with 10 reviews) and a 81 score at Meta Critics.
“McAdams does some of the best work of her career as Esti, the true instigator of this relationship (she is the only who hasn’t refused contact with Ronit) and the one who won’t give up on it. McAdams has been an underrated performer for years, and it’s nice to see her get a challenging role here. She’s easily the best thing about the movie. I wish the rest of the movie felt as fully realized as her performance because, like the relationship at its center, there’s potential here for something beautiful that feels just out of reach.”
