Ammonite

Critics Consensus

The chemistry between Saoirse Ronan and a never-better Kate Winslet helps Ammonite transcend its period romance trappings.

Critic Reviews for Ammonite

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (29) | Rotten (9)

  • Francis Lee's forbidden-love story in 1840s England is vital and austere, not unlike the fossilized sea creature that gives the film its title and poignant symbol.

    September 18, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • An over-reliance on visual aids is not a crime in itself. But coupled with some clunky lines, heat-free chemistry and a pair of oddly muted performances, the results are a wobbly-lipped bodice ripper that's verging on parody...

  • James Ivory might be proud and even jealous of the way writer-director Francis Lee takes the Anglo art house tradition of quality to an uncustomary level of sexual frankness.

  • Winslet and Ronan don't have chemistry so much as a kind of mesmerising tectonic accord, and slowly but surely, the two converge.

    September 14, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Right now, give Winslet your undivided attention.

    September 12, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • There's so much grace and nuance in this performance that it truly could be studied to consider all of the smart decisions that Winslet makes in each scene.
