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

Misbehaviour tackles some serious themes, but it does so in a thoroughly entertaining fashion.

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.

Overall... it's highly enjoyable with strong sequences involving mothers and daughters.

It's not really going to dig deep or push hard, but it's going to make a statement in a way that is lovely, warm, and cozy.

Stellar performances can only carry it so far, and when "Misbehaviour" finally puts all its disparate pieces and people together, the result isn't exciting so much as inevitable and hammily handled.

Keira Knightley and Jessie Buckley achieve both laughs and drama...
September 25, 2020
Good intentions, deft performances and vivid dollops of period style and sensibility go a long way to patch over the bumps.

The separate storylines help the film avoid the mistakes made in similar movies, particularly those dealing with feminist history.

It leaves breathing space for us to consider all of the experiences that went into the protest and what it represented to the women involved.
September 24, 2020
It... has a toothless vision of protest and empowerment that's doomed to fail its subject because its makers don't (can't) risk making the audience uncomfortable.

Misbehaviour is a film that makes its characters compete with each other for screen time and resonance and social messaging. Ultimately, no one goes home a winner.

I thought it was actually done very elegantly...

The film's failures are ... a timely reminder that feminist filmmaking can only be effective when it's truly intersectional.

Misbehaviour makes for especially mortifying viewing in a country where a two-day beauty pageant is still a ratings winner. Equality activists might like to pay close attention.

Lowthorpe's movie is an intellectual own goal that celebrates the very subject it purports to decry: the objectification of pretty girls.
March 16, 2020
Far from upsetting, this is a feelgood film, in the end, that British speciality.
March 14, 2020
The film is called Misbehaviour, but a timid script belies mischief of any sort.
March 12, 2020
An engaging, if decidedly disjointed production that's often let down by its inability to decide which story it wants to tell.
March 11, 2020
Knightley and Mbatha-Raw headline an excellent band of British talent, but the film's focus feels sadly misguided. There's a great story within Misbehaviour - we just don't get to see enough of it.
