Critic Reviews for The Surrogate

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (24) | Rotten (2)

  • A superb central performance from Batchelor guides the audience through a film which navigates an ethical and emotional minefield, and concludes that there are no easy answers.

  • It's all about the performance of Jasmine Batchelor. [The Surrogate] is wonderfully anchored by her.

    June 12, 2020 | Full Review…
  • An absolutely terrific debut from Jeremy Hersh, and Jasmine Batchelor is fantastic.

    June 12, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Hersh has a good ear for the way people talk about sensitive and difficult issues.

    June 12, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Its characters may illuminate a number of thorny issues, but they never exist just to illustrate them.

    June 11, 2020 | Full Review…
  • As it stands, the whole enterprise feels like something the classic-Hollywood problem-filmmaker Stanley Kramer might have come up with, if he were a sadist.
