Critic Reviews for A Date for Mad Mary

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (1)

  • Irish director Darren Thornton, with dynamo Sena Kerslake as Mary, delivers a canny blend of biting comedy and soulful drama

    June 20, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • There are a few 19th century Scandinavian playwrights who might envy Thornton and Akram their gifts for moulding personae.

    September 1, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Mad Mary is a delight, especially for its rounded supporting characters, its skewering use of language, and the pinpoint accuracy of its observations of life in this specific time and place.

    August 29, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Kerslake and Lee leave enough of an impression to be able to use this film as a gateway to greater things.

    August 29, 2016 | Full Review…
  • There are some delightfully unexpected moments - largely stemming from Mary's penchant for jeopardizing or even ruining whatever good things come her way.

    September 15, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • A moody score brings the film's sombre tone together - not that this film isn't hilarious when it wants to be. A Date for Mad Mary is a great showcase for some of the best talent coming out of the Emerald Isle.
