  • Like a lot of Shirley Jackson's work, it feels like something that warrants analysis and reflection.

  • By the time "Shirley" arrives at its tortured smile of an ending, it seems less a departure from "Madeline's Madeline" than it does a spiritual prequel, or maybe a buttoned-up aunt.

    January 27, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • A concoction of fact and magical realism, which may frame the film as a radically more exciting cousin to Stephen Daldry's Virginia Woolf-centered, triptych drama The Hours.

  • This is Decker's funniest film to date, yet also her most intimate and erotic.

    January 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A thrillingly perverse example of what happens when the shackles of biopic formula are cast aside.

  • In Shirley Jackson, [Moss] veers from grumpy to menacing to touching, turning in what may be her best - and is surely her wittiest - film performance to date.
