It's a glum, wrenching experience to watch, but the emotional impact is just far too shallow to linger.

There's a doleful beauty and elegance to the look of the film.

Eleanor Rigby isn't Scenes From a Marriage meets Rashomon - it's more like Before Midnight turned into a listlessly melancholy TV miniseries.

American movies are running perilously low on fresh, youngish talent. Who knows what [director] Benson will do next. I just left his first movie desperate to experience the second one.

Chastain delivers a brilliant performance that could earn her another Oscar nomination.
September 19, 2014
Worth it for the talent on display, disappointing for what the talent has been given, or not given, to work with.
September 18, 2014
Maturely written, richly characterized, and flawlessly acted.
September 18, 2014
A delicate and ephemeral romance.
September 18, 2014
"The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them" is worth seeing, if only for the way the camera lingers on Jessica Chastain as if she's a silken magnet.
September 18, 2014
Lacks the chemistry and cohesion to make us give a hoot about any of the people portrayed by a stellar cast.
September 18, 2014
The emotions these people feel, the moments of grief, of anger, of love and of clarity they experience, feel both real and recognizable.
September 18, 2014
It's an honest exploration of loss of the most devastating kind, an examination of how different people try to heal, if such a thing is possible.
September 18, 2014
For me Chastain's unerring honesty is the only element keeping "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" above the realm of pure affectation.
September 17, 2014
The performances are uniformly strong and there are some powerful scenes but the overall story arc is less insightful or affecting than one might hope.
September 15, 2014
What remains is knowing and allusive, but muffled-the earnestness is stalled by pauses and misgivings and occasionally made handsome with long tracking shots.
September 12, 2014
It boasts (nearly) all the elements of a perfectly fine, even very good, movie, without ever quite becoming a movie at all.
September 12, 2014
This is a patiently directed film with a rare sense of how the layout of a space can affect interactions within it.
September 12, 2014
Smart, sensitive, passionate.
September 11, 2014
What's conspicuously missing is any grasp of the lovers themselves. They suffer and yearn, dance in the moonlight and act out prettily, without benefit of recognizable inner lives.
September 11, 2014
At one point late in the turgid tale I found myself wondering what this movie would amount to if its heroine's parents hadn't named her after the Beatles song.
