  • Somehow, these two difficult people are easy to watch, at least on the screen. They are honest to a fault, which is, in the end, their charm.

    November 28, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The wild-haired Carter has the flashier role and, although she digs into it with gusto, she's all over the emotional map.

    November 13, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Fails to elicit memorable work from any of its principal collaborators.

  • Scene by scene you wish 55 Steps made you angrier than it does. Yet August's docile filmmaking acts as an emotional soporific, removing even the potential camp pleasures of Bonham Carter's histrionics.

    September 8, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Considering the ramifications of its true-life story, this earnest legal melodrama about fighting the system never achieves the necessary urgency or poignancy.

    November 17, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Though 55 Steps, well, side-steps the alarming political issues, with the doctors in question as cover for the true medical/pharmaceutical industrial complex villains, at its core this film transcends class as a remarkable female bonding story.
