A superior performance by Suchet helps keep this dry drama afloat
| Original Score: 3/5
It's Suchet and Harrow, exploring the wellsprings of loneliness, who provide the real glimmers of grace.
A poignant, powerfully-realized character study of two lonely people.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Nossiter does such an admirable job of enmeshing us and his two principals ... in their strange fairy-tale afternoon.
The heart of the film is strong.
Funny, intensely moving, scary, dream-like film.
It sounds simple, but director Jonathan Nossiter ... keeps adding layers to the story that give passionate resonance to their story.
Manages to balance the harshness of life with the yearning that makes living worthwhile.
Powerfully honest and risky performances from Suchet and Harrow propel the film.
| Original Score: 4/5
This Sundance Grand Prize winner ain't exactly a walk in the park, but it's got its own grittier sort of urban pleasure.
| Original Score: A-
But... it wasn't a great film because the story fell apart.
| Original Score: B-
| Original Score: 4.5/5
An arresting film, at once lyrical and gritty.
The film still succeeds on the strength of its two leads, David Suchet and Lisa Harrow.
Extraordinarily well-acted by its principals.
A deceptively lovely romance, at once plain and magical.
While the plot and outcome of Sunday may prove less than scintillating in the end, Nossiter's careful direction and calculated moodiness gives the film a satisfying lilt.
