July 16, 2019
Despite the compelling chemistry between Winstead and Common, the film drags when it fixates on their relationship and the contrived obstacles that befall it.
April 20, 2019
A major strength of the film is the ensemble work of Winstead and Common, who together have a believable, warm chemistry.

What is fresh about the film is that rather than be a set up for a climactic biographical confession, it so carefully paints the toxic environment women have to negotiate that her anger doesn't really feel like it needs explanation.
November 27, 2018
What could have been a portrait of female fame and notoriety in 2018 ends up as just a tiresome, played-for-shocks romance.

Eva Vives has made an important and powerful film, against some odds. She's a woman and Hispanic. She refused to make Nina "nicer." It isn't surprising that funding was hard to come by.

All About Nina works well as an adult romantic comedy, a female perspective on the comedy world, and a star vehicle for Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
October 25, 2018
Like Nina, Winstead's performance is both honestly funny and drop-dead serious.
October 19, 2018
... suffers from contrivances along the way, but generates genuine sympathy for Nina beneath her fragile yet abrasive exterior.
October 18, 2018
Mary Elizabeth Winstead is a tour de force as self-destructive stand up comic Nina Geld. The brazen film unleashes plenty of ugliness on the audience which fortunately is counterbalanced by the superb performances.
October 18, 2018
Nina is a tough woman to like but easy to love.
October 17, 2018
Always a likable actor, here Winstead is at a charismatic high, carrying a mediocre film, making it impossible to turn off through her star power alone.
October 16, 2018
One of the best performances of the year from Winstead...I encourage you to see it.
October 16, 2018
All About Nina is certainly a showcase for Winstead's versatility. It just doesn't come together as a story.
October 12, 2018
Writer/director Eva Vives switches things up a few times .
October 12, 2018
Only Common as Rafe offers the energy and appeal that consistently buoys this character study.
October 12, 2018
... it's hard to imagine anyone [other than Winstead] projecting the complex combination of anger, attractiveness, insecurity, and pain that makes Nina what she is.
October 12, 2018
Mostly, Vives' work is a series of punch lines that feel more like gut punches - a relentless challenge that Winstead handles with seeming ease.
October 12, 2018
Nina lays everything on the line, and in telling her story, Vives does too.
October 11, 2018
It's when Nina's defences break down that Winstead gets to show her real range, finding a depth, pain and vulnerability in her character that are difficult but cathartic to watch.
October 11, 2018
Everything hinges on Vives' direction, but it is Winstead who carries the entire movie. She is voracious in her humanity, but also extremely skillful in redressing her flaws into her routine.
