Movie Info

When Kelly meets Victor on the dance floor of a Liverpool nightclub, the attraction is instant. After wandering through the night they find themselves at her flat, making love with a passion and urgency that neither had experienced before. Both Kelly and Victor are struggling to get by as best they can, while the people around them are choosing illegal lifestyles; she is escaping a brutish former lover, while he is being dragged into a world of drugs. It's when they make love that their darker instincts take over.

Critic Reviews for Kelly + Victor

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (5)

  • There's something very unsentimental and provocative being served up along with the romance in this love story from writer-director Kieran Evans.

    Sep 19, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Kieran Evans' British romance is an occasionally shocking, often excellent ode to nihilistic love.

  • It's not all convincing. Campbell-Hughes (remote, brittle) is odd casting ... But once we're in the bedroom, the film takes on a shocking, bold air.

  • Looks dirtily chic and boasts an unsurprisingly sharp soundtrack, but is on less sure footing with its credibility-straining delineation of a sadomasochistic relationship.

  • Well-acted and creatively directed, Kelly + Victor is... what happens when two worlds collide.

    Jun 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It strives to tackle difficult subject matter but is never really edgy enough, and as an exercise in typical British drama -- kitchen-kink, if you will -- it fails to engage on the all-important emotional level.

    'Kelly + Victor'. The pleasure and pain of all sorts of abuse. Not your average love story!
