Critic Reviews for The Sunlit Night

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4) | Rotten (11)

  • The Sunlit Night has a few too many forced moments and scripted relationship beats to feel genuine.

  • Even the most clearly emotional scenes are undone by the outlandish surroundings.

  • "The Sunlit Night"... resembles the second half of Alexander Payne's "Downsizing," which proved that a similarly end-of-the-earth locale doesn't make dull characters any more exotic or exciting.

  • Slate gives her best to an underdeveloped role that was likely deeper in the novel by Rebecca Dinerstein, who makes her screenwriting debut with this adaptation.

  • If you're going to ask me to consume your slice of life story, at least make that slice part of a satisfying sandwich.

    May 26, 2019 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • It is as if The Sunlit Night aims to be unconventional merely for the sake of it. It has all of the dressings of a lovable indie, complete with the unusual setting and affable feel, but ultimately, it's structured in a way that fails to do it justice.
