Nancy Reviews

  • Mar 24, 2020

    This movie is absolutely awful. It actually has some decent actors in it, but they're never given the option to show their talent. The main character is a completely talentless actress that probably got this role by "other means" if you know what I mean. This movie stinks so bad. What a waste of time!! A perfect example of horrible moviemaking.

    Riseborough is terrific in this intriguing psychological drama. Not for everyone with its slow pacing and melancholic atmospherics. But I was drawn in and thoroughly engrossed to the end.

    Loved it! Andrea Riseborough is superb! So captivating. Already admired her, but she's just shot up even further in my estimation. Probably my favourite actress right now. And the film is so good too. It's so sweet and bleak and Nancy is such a twisted, sad but lovable character. And the story is a really interesting and clever one and it was filmed very well, with class and good pace and timing and sensitivity. Really, one the best movies I've seen in a long time.

    Not a fan of this. It leaves so many questions unanswered and not in a good way that makes you think about it a lot afterward. It's more along the lines of, "Oh... that's it?" It's an extremely slow burn. It's a drama, s don't be misled thinking you're in for a thriller.

    Good movie, but finished weak in my opinion. I think they could of just as easily went the other way in the story for a better and more dramatic ending.

    There's a fine line between delightfully ambiguous and inscrutably enigmatic, and this atmospheric but mostly unresolved mood piece tilts more toward the latter. This is one of those films where the audience keeps waiting for a big reveal that never really comes, leaving viewers with an unsatisfied appetite. To be sure, the film features fine performances across the board, but it's unfortunate that the talent wasn't given more to work with here. I'd usually say wait for DVD for a release like this, but that's where I saw it and still wouldn't recommend it.

    Nancy fabricates personas in order to relate with life. And when one of them is a long lost daughter - things get tricky. And sad.

    Movie night with Iris. Interesting debut with strong performances and a compelling tale. This could have gone down a darker, criminal route but wisely doesn't. It stays downbeat, and oddly touching.
