Jellyfish

Critics Consensus

Jellyfish finds its dramatic spine in fine work from Liv Hill in her feature debut, bringing authentic angst to this downbeat character study.

  • Jellyfish - moving, provocative, often hilarious - is quite a debut. Gardner and Hill. Remember those names.

  • Yet Hill's performance of wounded silence and pressure-cooker rage is so galvanising that all objections fade and she carries the film alone, right through to its admirably downbeat conclusion.

  • Some nice performances, but falls to pieces under light scrutiny.

    February 14, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A calling card for everyone involved, especially Hill, who always shows the flickers of Sarah's inner life, even as her character feigns blank, not bovvered.

  • It never condescends. It never condemns. It keeps its gaze on the characters, their colours, and their refusal to take on, chameleon-like, the drab hues of their environment.

    February 13, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • If British teenager Sarah Taylor's (Liv Hill) life was a movie, its relentless ghastliness might make even a seasoned miserabilist like Ken Loach say, "C'mon, now."
