Movie Info

Expecting couple Leah (Gaby Hoffmann) and June (Ingrid Jungermann) move into a Brooklyn brownstone apartment with their toddler daughter Lyle. Despite the strange baby-obsessed landlady downstairs and the group of female models who live above them, the two are happy with their new apartment until a bizarre accident leads to the death of Lyle. Months later, Leah is still grief-stricken, trying to make sense of Lyle's death, her landlady's odd behaviors, and her attraction to one of the models upstairs. As Leah prepares for her home birth, she begins to suspect the neighbors are involved in a satanic pact and fears for her unborn baby.

Critic Reviews for Lyle

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (10)

  • With a gripping performance by Gaby Hoffmann... the first feature by its writer-director is a winningly unsettling genre exercise whose style and polish belie the constraints of its microbudgeted five-day shoot.

  • What we get as the audience is a story told exactly as its creator intended, with a powerful complexity that lasts far past the initial hour of viewing.

    May 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It tackles difficult subjects, subjects few dare to cover and even fewer manage to bring forth the anguish, torture, guilt, sadness, inner turmoil, etc of a grieving mother.

    April 12, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • What could easily have spiraled into a campy marathon instead gains a remarkable semblance of engagement from its poker faced resoluteness and a committed central performance from Gaby Hoffman.

    August 30, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Lyle is a hard look at pregnancy and mental health, a welcomed addition to the canon of motherhood in film.

    May 1, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Some potential slow-burn build-up tension is jettisoned which is a shame, but it's certainly refreshing for a non-action film to trim its story down so succinctly.
