Hillbilly Elegy

Critics Consensus

With the form of an awards-season hopeful but the soul of a bland melodrama, Hillbilly Elegy strands some very fine actors in the not-so-deep South.

  • Hillbilly Elegy is objectively terrible.

    December 10, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Adams and Close deserved better than this relentlessly gloomy, often trite, movie. We all did.

    December 8, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • There's only a vague message about bootstraps and personal responsibility, and a whole lot of bad wigs.

    December 4, 2020 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Hillbilly Elegy and its Oscar dreams are all sizzle, no steak.

    December 4, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Hillbilly Elegy is an Oscar-friendly narrative of personal triumph in the face of great hardship, a movie designed to end with an uplifting epigraph; it is also one of the worst movies of the year.

    December 4, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Hillbilly Elegy communicates precious little about the culture it depicts - and exploits - with Oscar-baiting aspirations.
