Movie Info

NANCY is a provocative psychodrama about love, intimacy, and trust - and what happens when lies become truth. In this age of "fake news" and the curated self, Nancy (Andrea Riseborough) has become more comfortable assuming false personas than being herself, and lines have started to blur between fact and fiction, performance versus reality. Blindsided by the death of her mother, and facing rejection by a love interest, Nancy's life begins to unravel. When she meets a couple whose daughter went missing thirty years ago, she becomes increasingly convinced these strangers are her real parents. As their bond deepens, reasonable doubts give way to wilful belief - and the power of emotion threatens to overcome all rationality.


Critic Reviews for Nancy

You'll come away knowing you've seen a master at work.

January 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Nancy has an intellectual savviness to its sadness that works, as it challenges viewers on their compassion and ability to recognize something within someone who is so lost.

January 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Instead of exploring her actions, and the people they affect, Nancy's restraint keeps the film closed-off and grim, as muddy gray as the life she's aching to ditch.

January 22, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Nancy is a liar, but the trick is, we can't help but believe her. We want to.

January 22, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The movie's refusal to ingratiate is admirable, even if you end up wondering whether it was worth all the doom and gloom.

January 21, 2018 | Full Review…

An intense character study in triplicate, made gripping both by the deliberately ambiguous way in which Christina Choe approaches everyone's mental state and by the performances.

March 23, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
