Never Steady, Never Still

Critics Consensus

Subtle, slow, and nearly unbearably sad, Never Steady, Never Still lives and dies in its performances -- and thankfully, the soft-spoken strength of Shirley Henderson is enough to keep a steady pulse.

Critic Reviews for Never Steady, Never Still

  • If you don't treat yourself to this movie, you will indeed be missing out on one of the best pieces of acting 2018 cinema has to offer.

    June 24, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Hepburn doesn't demand that her characters conform to norms of sacrifice and redemption, preferring to follow Jamie and Judy's meandering, unhurried journey to cognizance and mutual appreciation.

  • Bleak but sometimes beautiful, the performance-driven feature debut is meatier than its slender plot might suggest, with a strong sense of place and an unsentimental frankness about conditions many filmmakers would milk for sympathy.

    June 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Like the remote and frequently challenging terrain, Never Steady, Never Still has a sublime, hypnotic gravitas.

    May 2, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It is plaintive and subdued, with a dual narrative focus that is not as satisfyingly developed or resolved as it might be.

    April 20, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Enervating stuff.
