Critic Reviews for Leonie

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (7)

It hits all the expected beats of a thoroughly vanilla biopic as an aging Leonie reflects on her unconventional life via plodding voiceover while doddering through a forest collecting berries.

As a portrait of female strength and a celebration of the artistic spirit, "Leonie" too seldom comes fully alive.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Failing to carve anything graceful or fluid out of a slab of biography, helmer Hisako Matsui does bring to light a curious and intriguing story of a great-woman-behind-a-great-man in Leonie.

Top Critic

Lushly photographed and featuring a stellar performance by the luminous Emily Mortimer in the title role, Hisako Matsui's film is deeply heartfelt but only intermittently compelling.

Leonie Gilmour was almost certainly unusual and unusually self-reliant. Too bad that the film that bears her name ultimately reduces her to the mother of her child.

Color it inspirational.

The movie is more enjoyable when pictures rather than words do the talking. Mortimer is wonderful, but her speeches are less memorable than the simple shots of Japanese flowers, fields and homes that Matsui uses as artistic grout to connect scenes.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Though Leonie is slow at times, it highlights a little-known historical figure in a manner that is emotionally and intellectually satisfying.

Oregonian

Despite some nice period elements, it's a mostly sparkle-free affair, sticking so closely to the genre blueprint as to be generic.

Times-Picayune

Matsui's Leonie is, very simply, a beautiful film, and one that will live in our hearts and minds long after it ends on screen.

Film Threat

Uneven, but it captures a time, and a woman ahead of her time.
