Critic Reviews for A Date for Mad Mary

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

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

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.

Kerslake and Lee leave enough of an impression to be able to use this film as a gateway to greater things.

Although A Date for Mad Mary doesn't break any new ground, it exhibits a confidently assured (if slightly thorny) approach to its subject matter and despite hitting many familiar beats, its rhythm is impeccably in-time.

Based on a stage play by Yasmine Akram, debut feature director Darren Thornton does a terrific job with the performances.

Put simply, this is a delight from start to finish, generating big laughs and powerful emotion, while marking out both director and leading lady as serious talents to watch.
