All three stars do smart, honorable work.
May 8, 2013
Though the plot has some annoying holes, the dialogue and the performances are excellent.

While Agnes of God has been considerably opened up, it is actually muddled in its transfer from stage to screen.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 8, 2013
Despite all the anguished huffing and puffing, there isn't a single authentic moment in it.
May 8, 2013
Jewison thankfully offers no easy conclusions or happy endings, but he also brings up little to add to the theological debate.
May 8, 2013
Fonda and Bancroft are interesting to watch together, in spite of their insufficient performances. But their meaty dialogues don`t amount to much.

It is Meg Tilly who makes the movie live. Her performance, which works on both realistic and symbolic levels, allows you to believe in the story.

Agnes of God plays with some challenging ideas and some sensationalistic events, but ultimately it fails to earn its right to toy with such subjects.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 6, 2010
Hysterical, pseudo-religious melodrama that's too verbose and stagey for the big scren, though the acting, especially Bancroft and Tily, is good.

Controversial religion themed story worth seeing; based on stage success.

Fonda's relentless interrogating, mannered chain-smoking and enforced two dimensionality cause her to become tiresome very early on.

Splendidly shot by Sven Nykvist and with excellent performances, it's an agreeable puzzle which doesn't, thank heaven, come up with a solution to the meaning of life.
August 17, 2003
Deadly - despite good work from Meg Tilly, the film is grotesquely directed and the spiritual debate is sensationalized beyond all reason.
| Original Score: 0/5
May 20, 2003
Miss Tilly makes a radiant Agnes, and Miss Bancroft a shrewd, forceful Mother Superior, but the writing limits each of their roles.

Well-acted and soul-stirring drama about miracles and the clash between reason and faith.
July 29, 2002
a provocative piece featuring virtuoso acting from Fonda, Bancroft and Tilly
| Original Score: 4/5
July 25, 2002
A handful of darn solid performances are mired in a tiresome and muddled narrative.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
January 1, 2000
Although the movie deals in the basic materials of a criminal investigation (cynical cops, forensic details, courtroom testimony), it has a seriously clouded agenda.
