Ammonite

Critics Consensus

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

  • It captures the essence of a forbidden attraction at a time when same-sex love was stifled and considered deviant.

    November 19, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's just a lot of smoke, which makes it even harder to see through the film's hazy lens.

    November 18, 2020 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan make a fascinating couple in the well-spun period piece.

    November 14, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a plain and inarguable fact that we all deserve a movie in which Winslet and Ronan, specialists in complex women, play unlikely lovers whose bonnets are just itching to get ripped off. A reasonable person wouldn't complain.

    November 13, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A film like this should give life to its characters and reveal essential truths beyond the book-report versions of their existence. But "Ammonite" keeps you at a distance on a rather vacant, but beautiful, journey.

    November 13, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Ammonite has moments of delicacy and beauty, but it's not a movie for everybody.
