Critic Reviews for Age of Consent
The picture has immense charm and the actual photography (particularly underwater scenes) and superb scenery make it a good travelog ad for the Great Barrier Reef area where most of it was filmed.September 17, 2015 | Full Review…
A lovely, erotic, and idyllic comedy.
There are some nervous insertions of redundant comic relief, but not enough to shatter the prevailing mood: brilliant sunlight illuminating all the unmomentous ins and outs of a human passion.
Age of Consent is never as provocative or engrossing as it should be, but there is enough of interest (especially Mirren) to make it worth a look.February 9, 2009 | Full Review…
Though it lacks the vivid touch from his earlier days, it has a surprisingly comfortable, relaxed feel, still vigorous but also at peace.January 9, 2009 | Full Review…
Powell's deft exploration of the emotional effects of their encounter prove much more successful than the film's odd comic subplots.
Audience Reviews for Age of Consent
Dec 13, 2007I watched all the way through this movie before I found out that the "child" in this movie was Helen Mirren. Who knew she was young once. Actually I didn't like the movie that much. I would have preferred that the painter stayed true to his art and not thrash around with the kid at the end.Red L Super Reviewer
Dec 03, 2007Michael Powell's last directorial endeavor, the resurrection of James Mason's career, and the role that put Helen Mirren on the map. This beautiful little film is a must-see for a stunning Mirren alone, although it is a great comment on the 60s. Thinking about it now, as Powell's last, I see parallels with Shakespeare's <i>The Tempest</i> and even, perhaps, with Faulkner's <i>The Reivers</i>. I say again, flixster friends, this is a true must-see.Lanning : Super Reviewer
