Quiet and haunting, Nancy is an intriguing first feature from a talented director

It was flat and dull.

Nancy is a film about identity and the events in our lives that make us who we are. If you thought you loved Andrea Riseborough in Mandy, just wait.
February 11, 2019
Riseborough, so appealing in Battle of the Sexes and amusingly histrionic in The Death of Stalin, is astonishing in the lead role.
February 7, 2019
Narrative, performance and stylish production design marry jarringly yet brilliantly in this intelligent and unsettling think piece.
January 9, 2019
The film proves a beautifully composed character piece refusing to languish in hopeless melancholy for added drama to see what can be accomplished by simple and honest grace.

... leaves the protagonist's motives and beliefs ambiguous, which yields some intriguing character dynamics to supplement the underlying poignancy.

Riseborough [has a] gifted ability to surprise even in a film's final moments. She is not one to lay down her cards on the table all at once, and we're all the better for it.

Andrea Riseborough is phenomenal as the troubled lead. There's a subtlety and mastery to her performance.

The overwhelming screen charisma of Andrea Riseborough is just about strong enough to prevent this identity drama from derailing into art house obscurity.

Good performances and interesting, though undeveloped narrative ideas in this debut feature from writer-director Christina Choe.
October 8, 2018
Riseborough anchors a twisting narrative that often skates close to morally questionable territory, but remains a compelling portrait of identity, love and connection in the modern world.
October 3, 2018
Intriguingly watchable for its potential to cover new ground in this genre even if a depressing film.
September 10, 2018
Really, really, a performance and story worth looking at.
September 7, 2018
The lifting of emotional barriers isn't just beautifully portrayed by the actors, but evoked by the arresting compositions of cinematographer Zoe White and an unsettling score from Peter Raeburn that grows more intense as the film wears on.
August 8, 2018
This is a tightly structured story that will leave you guessing about, and feeling for, the broken people at its center.
August 6, 2018
While it may not make you jump out of your seat in terror, Nancy will send chills down your spine in its own cold and calculating way.
