Jude is masterfully rendered.
May 1, 2012
The film has its period down cold, but what makes it special is its nerve, about which the best you can say is that it matches Hardy's own.

It's good quality stuff, but sublimely miserable.

It's worth seeing Jude, a stark adaptation of Thomas Hardy's Jude the Obscure, just for the extraordinary performance of Christopher Eccleston as Jude Fawley.

Young English actress Kate Winslet adds luster and energy to Jude, a bold and generally successful attempt to adapt Thomas Hardy's final novel, Jude the Obscure, to the bigscreen.

Without the benefit of Hardy's prose, the point of the movie is lost in the grim, grayish ether.
June 24, 2006
Ambitious, sensitive, but ultimately uninvolving.
September 11, 2005
Superbly acted by all involved.

Jude isn't a movie to see as entertainment, but is a strong contemplation on man's struggle to overcome oppressive odds.

Sometimes outstanding but is a not always satisfying screen adaptation of Thomas Hardy's last novel.

Among the very best, frankest, and most honest of recent literary adaptations.

Jude remains a handsome if gravely flawed film.
August 27, 2002
Harrowing and compelling screen adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel set in 19th century England

Faithfully adapted from Thomas Hardy's novel, Jude (minus the Obscure)...It's also a difficult film to like because it is, simply put, a downer.
April 17, 2001
...as modern British historical films go, this is visually one of the most impressive.
