Movie Info

In their mid-30s, Eva (Oona Chaplin) and Kat (Natalia Tena) have a fun and carefree simple life in their London canal boat until Eva, inspired by her exceptional mother Germaine (played by her real mother Geraldine Chaplin), presents Kat with an ultimatum: she wants a child. Kat resists, knowing that it will end the bohemian lifestyle that she's always envisioned with Eva. When Kat's best friend, Roger (David Verdaguer), drops in from Barcelona, the three of them toy around with the idea of creating a baby together. Kat sees no other way out but to say yes. As the three begin to look forward as one family, their differing expectations of intimacy and responsibility put a heavy strain on their relationship and threatens to rip the three apart.

Critic Reviews for Anchor and Hope

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (2)

Too often, viewers just have to take a movie love story's word for it that its characters actually belong together. Not so in Carlos Marques-Marcet's loose, observant Anchor and Hope.

November 14, 2018 | Full Review…

There's a potentially smart and sexy lesbian dramedy at the heart of "Anchor and Hope" that gets lost amid idiosyncratic filmmaking and a lack of narrative discipline.

November 14, 2018 | Full Review…

The story of a lesbian couple trying to have a baby is well-executed on nearly every front.

November 15, 2018 | Full Review…

A good cast and novel setting is wasted on this tired and slow gay "having a baby" romance that lacks the warmth or wit to draw us in.

November 14, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

This all-consuming, constantly moving three-way relationship is well plotted, as true love and longstanding friendship are threatened by individual insecurities. The writers have a terrific ear for realistic dialogue.

November 12, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The canal proves to be an exquisite backdrop for Dagmar Weaver-Madsen beautiful cinematography whilst the three leads all impress.
