To this viewer the film lacked emotional depth.

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.

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.
March 13, 2020
William Nicholson's film about the end of his parents' marriage is so bad even Annette Bening can't save it...
March 12, 2020
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.
March 12, 2020
Superb acting, scenery in otherwise dreary divorce drama.
March 12, 2020
There's considerable wit on display, but little in the way of character detail and background that would distinguish this marital breakdown from countless others.
March 7, 2020
Squishy. It felt earnest to the person who made it, but not to me, the person watching it.
March 6, 2020
A drama that's tastefully restrained to a fault in a particularly British manner.
March 6, 2020
"Hope Gap," despite the best efforts of the cast, comes up a bit too short.
March 5, 2020
The film is a waste of Bening's talents: an inoffensive tale inspiring little more than a shrug, thereby making it hard to either wholeheartedly endorse or strongly criticize.
March 5, 2020
So many grandiose tactics portend a grander revelation than the film's otherwise low-key three-hander delivers.
October 9, 2019
The film has a lived-in feeling, but it doesn't erase the fact that Hope Gap is simply too generic and dull with characters you won't want to root for.
October 7, 2019
It's a muddled film; a painful little knot with moments of keen observation linked awkwardly together by a fumbled, too on-the-nose script, and oddly flat tone.
September 28, 2019
When Bening isn't on screen the film feels so horribly empty one wonders who was inspired to make a film on such hollow, miserable people.
September 23, 2019
Unfortunately for Nicholson, Bening and Nighy aren't enough to fill what's missing.
September 11, 2019
Striving hard not to be simplistic in its diagnosis of the characters, Hope Gap ends up being shapeless and monotonous.
September 7, 2019
Nicholson fails to give his film the specificity and emotional depth required to make it seem necessary.
