Critic Reviews for Fanny Lye Deliver'd

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6)

  • It is a film which follows its own instincts and is happy to retain (and proudly display) a few ragged edges, and it's all the more interesting for it.

  • The lead performance by Peake holds it together: fierce, strong, intelligent - a convincing depiction of someone who will learn from what she will survive.

    Oct 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • As Fanny Lye Deliver'd moves to embrace its folk horror label, frenzy and gore increases.

  • A cult-western fairy-tale which will either capture audiences with its absurdities or have them walking out of the cinema. Either way, you won't forget it in a hurry.

    Oct 18, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Fanny Lye Deliver'd is too uneven to fully embrace either folk horror or historical drama; that said, its beautiful cinematography, uncompromising nastiness, and excellent performances make it one to seek out.

    Oct 18, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Authentic, pastoral, feminist, and very violent, this story about the liberation of Puritan housewife Fanny Lye (a superb Maxine Peake) slowly burns up the screen.
