Band Aid Reviews

June 20, 2017
Full of sarcastic humor, earnest emotion and a phenomenal performance from writer/director/producer/star Zoe Lister-Jones, it hinges on the central relationship. But even with deep-rooted problems, this is a couple worth rooting for.

[The] glib, zinger-laden bickering is more wearisome than funny and never adds up to a believable relationship on the rocks.

As a performer, Lister-Jones acquits herself well on both the comedic and melodramatic fronts. And the scruffily charming Pally comes across as a hybrid of Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd.

It's a terrific debut from Lister-Jones, on all fronts.

The film too often struggles to find a balance between being searing and charming; at best, it's a notable curio, one Lister-Jones may well build on for her next feature.

I wouldn't call "Band Aid" profound, but it's wiser and deeper than the average pop song, if not by much.

Lister-Jones makes us believe in this couple, keeps us interested in their lives and keeps us thinking about other people like them.
June 8, 2017
A clever and heartfelt comedy-drama that remains aloft as long as it retains its sense of humor; when the going gets serious, the dialogue turns therapeutic and heavy.
June 2, 2017
Their career ruts, their marital disputes and their underlying mutual love all rings true, making what could have been merely a wacky high-concept premise into a relationship's genuine and deeply felt cry for help.

Lister-Jones is the very definition of a 'phenom' and if the film sometimes falls back on clich, there's enough charm and interest here--particularly in the chemistry between the two leads--to keep it afloat.

A charming and profoundly affecting film that dives into the messy business of creation.

You'll believe you're watching two people who love each other but no longer know how to live with each other. You may still wish Band Aid better distinguished their relationship.

Both leads are excellent together, and the movie is good at showing how Anna and Ben push each other's buttons.

At its best, Band Aid ... carries us along with Anna and Ben's rocky ride through mourning the loss of youth, with its absolutist faith that there's a life code to be cracked, upon which a door will swing open to blissful ever after.

If Zoe Lister-Jones wrote, produced, and directed her new film, Band Aid, to finally give herself a standout role, she succeeded.
January 30, 2017
A rock-tinged comedy about channeling the banal conflicts of married life into musical energy.
January 26, 2017
Band Aid may be slight, a bit stagey and not too visually striking, but it's also heartfelt, funny, and straight-up enjoyable.
January 26, 2017
Sweet and sincere Band Aid makes a convincing case that relationships are all about how you heal from them.
January 24, 2017
An exuberantly low-key charmer that uses a light, wry touch to tackle such weighty matters as artistic drive and inertia and the male-female divide, while offering new fuel for drummer jokes.
January 24, 2017
It lives and dies on Lister-Jones and Pally's chemistry, which the film is just as willing to test as to nurture.
