All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4)

It's rather bleak but the camera work is exceptional, the pace languorous and Hepburn's screenplay deliberately ambiguous.

Settles on viewers as quietly as overnight snow on a wintering field.

British actress Shirley Henderson uses her soft voice and tiny frame to great effect.

The hardship of it is immediate, but it never feels forced or exploitative. [Kathleen] Hepburn cares for her characters too much to force matters in such a way.

September 11, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | 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…

There's not enough artistic merit in Kathleen Hepburn's film to make all its dourness worthwhile, but Henderson is excellent, and the scenes describing simple moments of compassion are poignant.
