Critic Reviews for Private Life
Private Life miraculously gifts the viewer an empathetic lens to a painful battle, usually whispered, rarely openly discussed.
Jenkins' writing underlines the fundamental instability at the heart of all our lives, while proposing that most universal of remedies: empathy, love.
This is a story you'll want to watch to its exquisitely compassionate ending: a wordless final-credits aria that, as with Michael Clayton and Call Me by Your Name, speaks volumes about the nature of minute-to-minute emotional survival.
The geometry of this strange triangle is always in flux, but it's always raw and engaging to watch the Grimes weigh the life they want to create against the ones they're in the process of living.
There are elements on the fringe of Private Life (a few supporting performances, the 127-minute length, a couple of sitcomish turns), that keep it from connecting as much I wanted, but the work by Paul Giamatti and Kathryn Hahn always holds it together.
