Critic Reviews for A Date for Mad Mary

All Critics (16) | 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.

  • 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.

  • Honest, human and genuine, A Date with Mad Mary is not one you'll want to miss.

    Mar 27, 2018 | Full Review…
  • 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.
