To this viewer the film lacked emotional depth.

Always lovely to see Bening and Nighy, always a warm delight to set some of this tug of war on the pebbly beaches, rocky crags and chalky cliffs.

A very interesting drama by a really good playwright.

Hope Gap, boosted by two incredible lead performances, works as an honest and complex portrait of a seemingly ideal marriage. [Full review in spanish]
May 9, 2020
An old-fashioned drama about love and divorce that touches the heart.

When Hope Gap finds its footing it really takes flight, allowing this talented cast to create something that is honest and raw.

It can be frustrating to watch at times, but Nicholson's layered and complex screenplay along with Bening's superb performance make this a rewarding experience.

The intimate aspects ring true, as well as the lead performances, that you can forgive its staginess and dispassionate tone.

Indelible and infuriating in equal measure, filmmaker William Nicholson's anatomy of his parents' own broken marriage rides high on superb performances from Annette Bening and Bill Nighy and raw emotions that cut deep,

Hope Gap/i>, like the marriage it portrays, it's pleasant but entirely bored and stale.
May 6, 2020
Hope Gap is slightly miscast and mis-focused, still managing to generate powerful feelings and discussion.

Ending a marriage after 30 years is difficult, taking place perhaps more than we think. This film, acted to a T by an aging couple, grants us poetic insight into the attendant grief.

"Hope Gap" ultimately offers a tidy exploration of people who were miserable and, as it concludes, have moved on.

One of the main reasons to watch "Hope Gap" is to see a trio of fine actors working its way through equally fine direction.

I used to believe any movie with Annette Bening had merit, no matter how slight. But the cloying "Hope Gap" blows that theory out of the water.

The seaside visuals are a treat, although the film lacks sufficient narrative urgency to resonate.

William Nicholson's film about the end of his parents' marriage is so bad even Annette Bening can't save it...
March 13, 2020
Here Annette Bening and Bill Nighy as husband and wife, and Josh O'Connor as their son Jamie, give solid, even superb, performances.

Some will call it boring, and it is stagy, talky and understated to a fault. Yet Hope Gap is also smart, soulful, wise, marvelously acted and set in a stunning coastal village where you can almost see France - and maybe even glimpse a glimmer of hope.

Indeed, the sensation that dogs Hope Gap is that they forgot to roll camera on the most dramatic parts. What's left over isn't bad, only underwhelming.
