My Days of Mercy

Critics Consensus

Though My Days of Mercy's knotty romance drifts into melodrama, it's grounded by Ellen Page and Kate Mara's exceptional chemistry.

Critic Reviews for My Days of Mercy

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (2)

  • A well-meaning but increasingly contrived melodrama that is hardly believable or meaningful.

  • The effervescent chemistry between the two leads [saves] it from Sundance-y overearnestness.

  • The movie doesn't buckle under the weight of its ambitions, and in straining to find the light it ends up engaging and compelling - even if it is overly complex.

  • Produced as a vehicle for co-starring friends Ellen Page and Kate Mara, "Mercy" serves them both well, with critical support likely to help the film find an audience despite its challenging themes.

    Variety
    Top Critic
  • Exerts a certain pull due to its unblinking evocation of bare-bones working class American life and the slow-burn relationship sensitively etched by Ellen Page and Kate Mara.

    September 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • This means that the death penalty parts are actually much better than the rom-com ones, and the disparity leads to some tonally awkward mid-scene transitions between the two.

Audience Reviews for My Days of Mercy

  • Aug 25, 2019
    Now this was an odd one. I don't know if I've really seen a movie in which the message is "When it comes to the death penalty, a centrist view is what's best". I've defintely never seen a movie in which that is the core of the movie from start to end, and that movie is a romance. Salvaged by the 110% believable performances given by both leads.
