December 17, 2020
A nuanced, well-written slice of very colorful history. Some of the conclusions are a bit on the nose, and Greg Kinnear's nose is a bit off, but I'm glad I experienced this story.

A powerful window into this rowdy, angry and game-changing historical moment where gender and race collided

If you're a fan of crowdpleasing, character-driven, based-on-real-life British period dramas featuring fab costume and production design, then Misbehaviour will be exactly the end of 2020 treat you've been waiting virtually all year for.
December 3, 2020
Featuring a slew of strong performances, it's a film worth your time.
December 2, 2020
Misbehaviour tackles some serious themes, but it does so in a thoroughly entertaining fashion.
November 28, 2020
Caught in a tug-of-war between these two inimical angles, the film never blows up with the anarchic fury you're hoping for - it's polite and balanced to a dithering degree.
November 26, 2020
Though Misbehaviour is a bit slow to warm up, its heated finale proves well worth the wait.
November 20, 2020
...while the film is energetic, often amusing and accurate about the era's often alarming prejudices, it also gets entangled in didacticism and self-consciousness...
November 18, 2020
Whilst the Gaby Chiappe/Rebecca Frayn-penned script dabbles in cliched narrative beats and doesn't always give the character focus some players deserve, Misbehaviour still tells an important story, one that sadly still holds relevance and weight in 2020.
November 10, 2020
Misbehaviour's feminist message, loud and clear, will have supporters dusting off their placards and out in full force, aspiring for the day when equal pay for equal work will be achieved.

The reason films, especially comedies, follow formulas is because they work. That's the case with the smartly cast farce Misbehaviour.
October 30, 2020
A wacky pop culture period-piece comedy from England.
October 12, 2020
Politics and humour rarely make an entertaining mix outside of satire, but Misbehaviour manages cleverly to weld observations about sexism and racism to a lightly comedic storyline.
October 8, 2020
There's still something lacking in Misbehaviour. There's no real sense of danger or consequence.

Its London in the 70's and this movie turns its eyes on women's rights, racial equality and (drum roll please) a look at Bob Hope's marriage???
October 3, 2020
If people are in the mood for a feel-good feminist drama and more insight into the 1970 Miss World Pageant controversies, then Misbehaviour strikes the right balance of being entertaining and informative.
October 1, 2020
Based on a true story, this lively British drama tackles enormous issues that have powerful echoes half a century later.
October 1, 2020
It's got a killer cast and a stirring inspired-by-headlines story to tell. Yet Philippa Lowthorpe's Misbehaviour only really kicks in during the closing credits.
October 1, 2020
The good news is that its cast is packed (maybe too packed) with talented ladies who are capable of selling their characters, even if the script is too afraid to fully flesh most of them out .
October 1, 2020
Overall... it's highly enjoyable with strong sequences involving mothers and daughters.
