...I was immersed in this story no matter who was telling the tale.

The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them is a lovely enough film even though it may not stick with you much long after the ending credits.

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

It's a very good film, but throughout it, its phantom limbs tingle, hinting that it was something much more special before its Frankenstein job.

The movie is sad and, occasionally, devastating, but not without hope.

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.

Her is such a well-drawn character sketch-with such a fantastic Chastain performance-that it practically justifies the whole experiment.

Chastain delivers a brilliant performance that could earn her another Oscar nomination.

Worth it for the talent on display, disappointing for what the talent has been given, or not given, to work with.

Maturely written, richly characterized, and flawlessly acted.

It's a keen, dual character study that goosed both hot tears and teeth-grinding from me.

A delicate and ephemeral romance.

"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.

Lacks the chemistry and cohesion to make us give a hoot about any of the people portrayed by a stellar cast.

The emotions these people feel, the moments of grief, of anger, of love and of clarity they experience, feel both real and recognizable.

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.
Sep 18, 2014
For me Chastain's unerring honesty is the only element keeping "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" above the realm of pure affectation.

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.
