Critic Reviews for Ladies in Black

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (29) | Rotten (4)

  • It's a film whose cast is utterly sweet and lovely to look at even if the movie feels incredibly thin.

    May 29, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "Ladies" is let down by a screenplay lacking the sharp wit and emotional depth to bring its characters and themes fully to life.

    September 24, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Ladies in Black isn't really a plot-driven movie, it's more of a mood, it's about inviting you to spend some time in this lovely, quaint world where it's always sunny.

    September 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • From our vantage point 60 years on, Ladies in Black offers a vision - idealised, but perhaps not wholly false - of a moment when it was possible to welcome newcomers to the country and the unfamiliar ideas they brought with them.

    September 19, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Ladies in Black quietly but effectively points out the seldom-stressed positives of immigration and integration, and thus deserves attention far beyond its own native shores.

    September 15, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Ladies in Black may be seen mistakenly as lightweight or slight; it isn't. It brims with subtext and nuance and at the same time succeeds in being a thoroughly enjoyable entertainment.

    September 14, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
