Critic Reviews for Apostasy

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (32) | Rotten (1)

  • It is a quietly brilliant work that balances the conflicts of three women, and the trio of actresses playing them give stunning performances.

  • Best of all, this isn't some seething satirical takedown of the Jehovah's Witnesses as a ridiculous and snicker-worthy denomination.

  • Emotionally, the film is a baton skilfully passed from Wright to Parkinson, both superb, while Finneran, severe and stricken, remains a constant.

    July 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Well crafted and of noble intent, even if it sometimes feels as if this material might have worked better as a documentary.

    July 26, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Daniel Kokotajlo's low budget drama Apostasy gives audiences a revealing and very uncomfortable insight into the lives of Jehovah's Witnesses.

    July 25, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Kokotajlo's first feature is shot in a muted beige glow. No dramatic colours; just the pulse of anxious, unquiet, outwardly placid lives obeying the call of self-denial.
