      Saint Frances Reviews

      Prev Next

      Funny, light and perforated with wicked one-liners, it takes the initial premise from Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up and drives it into entirely different and eminently more satisfying territory.

      O'Sullivan's script has an emotional honesty and lightness of touch that allows no room for cynicism, and she navigates themes such as "geriatric" pregnancy and postnatal depression with an impressive generosity to her characters.

      Thompson's filmmaking sticks to the safe and familiar territory of a lo-fi indie, never pushing its aesthetic to places that might challenge the viewer like its subject matter does.

      2020's best coming of age drama.

      An unlikely friendship forms between Bridget and Frances, and it's such a joy to follow. An immensely likeable and utterly charming watch.

      This funny, heart-wrenching and gorgeously shot tale of a 30-something woman finding herself exudes warmth, kindness and humour.

      I don't recall the last time I saw so many strong female characters in a film who all shared so many emotionally powerful scenes together.

      Saint Frances is smart and original and anti-sensationalist. It is also a very good film, which speaks to you but never shouts.

      Talking about awkward things without shame is what this film endorses - and does well.

      I do wish "Saint Frances" indulged in or two fewer getting-to-know-you montages. But I say that about most every movie that comes along, even the good ones.

      Saint Frances is a fine addition to a new generation of American films that seek to break taboos on subjects too long considered untouchable.

      Full Review | Feb 5, 2021

      Effortlessly real and charming, Saint Frances is an absolute winner.

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/5 | Feb 1, 2021

      Saint Frances is a smart movie about empowerment, that doesn't feel like a message movie. It carefully studies life's most constant aspect, change.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Jan 29, 2021

      Saint Frances is one of far too few movies that approaches all of these realities with eyes wide open.

      Edgy feminist drama removes judgment from sex, abortion.

      [Kelly] O'Sullivan's screenplay, much like her performance, is sweet without ever turning sickly. Alex Thompson's direction, in turn, carefully matches her tone.

      Like all the best films about fumbling your way through to deeper self-understanding, Saint Frances doesn't feel too programmed, and leaves a lot of mess on the table.

      Saint Frances' mix of humour and bold-faced reality is a unique and necessary (re)vision for these modern times

      Full Review | Nov 19, 2020

      Funny and challenging, complex and at times transcendent.

      Full Review | Nov 13, 2020

      It's the type of film that pulls the audience in with familiarity, only to end up leaving them spiritually and emotionally fulfilled while entertaining them.
