Critic Reviews for Vita & Virginia

All Critics (91) | Top Critics (29) | Fresh (38) | Rotten (53)

  • Much of the dialogue in Vita and Virginia is scooped directly from love letters exchanged between the writers - which, unfortunately, makes for a rather cumbersome screenplay.

  • It's not as bold as that trio, but it's elevated by some adroit dialogue and knockout performances from Gemma Arterton as Vita Sackville-West, and Elizabeth Debicki as Virginia Woolf.

    April 6, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Maybe dramatizing their correspondence would have worked if it had been paired with convincing dialogue.

    November 20, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • This peek into a famous love story makes the audience a participant in the affair, inspiring questions of perspective and truth in love and art, where the only truth worth anything is one deeply felt.

    September 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's never a good sign for your rulebreaking romance when the occasional bits of dialogue between wayward wives and their sad husbands is more human, more feeling, and more emotionally intelligible than that between the lesbian lovers.

    September 6, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The movie's editing undermines both lead performances. Scenes end abruptly, or seem set up for a moment that never arrives.
