Friendship's Death Photos

Movie Info

True to her name, Friendship (Tilda Swinton) wants all humans to get along. She's a robot from a distant world planning to exhort mankind to reform its violent ways. But, when she lands in Amman, Jordan, in 1970, she finds Palestinians waging deadly battles with Jordanians. Sullivan (Bill Paterson), a British journalist covering the fighting, ferries her to safety, and the unlikely pals pass the time discussing mortality, technology, the nature of warfare and the modern media.

Critic Reviews for Friendship's Death

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (1)

  • The droll double-act chemistry between Paterson and Swinton is unexpectedly great, especially considering the enigmatically childlike and lovably humourless demeanour that Swinton often projects.

  • The chemistry between Swinton and Bill Paterson is electric. The former being adept at playing burnt-out, cynical characters. It's full of metaphors, of course, but even taken on face value, it's an absorbing, prescient watch.

    June 28, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This is mostly a pleasantly strange meditation on what it means to be human that has many a prescient observation to share about life on Planet Earth.

  • The excellent performances of Paterson and Swinton... lend Friendship's Death a credibility it does not always deserve.
