Return to Montauk (2017)
Critic Reviews for Return to Montauk
Wolff cuts a fascinating if frustrating figure, and you wish the film would spend a bit more time teasing out who she is, how she lives, and what she sees in a bore like Max.
[An] emotionally inert drama about an author trying to reanimate the past.
"Return to Montauk" is Volker Schlöndorff's tasteful, high-minded Euro-literate version of a Lifetime Movie - and I mean that (mostly) as a compliment.
It's main story-line is a mess, too intellectual to tug at the heart strings and too wordy to accurately capture emotion.
Sadly this Colm Tóibín-assisted effort has none of the warmth of his best work.
Audience Reviews for Return to Montauk
A mildly interesting (if not at all memorable) character study that benefits from strong performances (especially Nina Hoss) and displays a mature understanding of the personal conflict faced by a self-centered man who wants to relive an old romance from his past.
