Critic Reviews for Nelly
What may have been profound and poetic on the page feels redundant and banal on screen.
What anchors the proceedings is the lead performance of Mylene Mackay, whose star will definitely be on the rise after this sexy, galvanizing turn.
The character Ms. Émond and Ms. Mackay create is not likable, but is puzzling in an engrossing way.
Émond obviously has deep feeling for Arcan, and "Nelly" is a sincere and respectful attempt to do at least partial, fragmentary justice to a troubled woman...
Nelly audaciously renders the contradictions and uncertainties of a writer's inchoate life, even if its central figure remains slightly out of focus.
