Critic Reviews for Francine

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (8)

  • While it's audacious on the part of the filmmakers (and of Leo) to keep Francine at arm's length from us, it makes the film a frustrating experience.

    January 3, 2013 | Rating: 2/4
  • Francine portrays a woman on the socioeconomic margins and the sort of fiscal cliff that personalizes the phrase no politician can avoid these days.

    November 14, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Brian M. Cassidy and Melanie Shatzky, documentary makers trying their hand at drama, inspire a certain voyeuristic fascination toward the character but rarely sympathy.

    November 8, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Melissa Leo plays her without inflection, giving us no instructions about what our opinion should be. It is a brave performance, an act of empathy with a sad woman.

    November 8, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Francine" is a small, detailed character study that never evolves into anything more.

    October 24, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • What with the unexciting hand-held camerawork, and the off-putting script and lead performance, "Francine" remains as frustrating as its inscrutable title character.
