Critic Reviews for Who We Are Now

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (1)

  • Though similar in plot to the 2006 indie Sherrybaby, this Brooklyn-set drama owes more in tone and style to the searing character studies of John Cassavetes.

  • Every minute of this film is absolutely mesmerizing.

    May 30, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Superbly acted and confidently shot, "Who We Are Now" delivers substantial dramatic pleasures while posing pertinent questions.

    May 24, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Once again, [Newton] refuses to pretend that lives in disarray can be magically repaired by good intentions, while simultaneously avoiding the defeatist attitude that insists there's consequently no point in even trying.

  • While Nicholson's onscreen, it's impossible to pay heed to anything but her. She scorches the film with her barely bottled ferocity and vulnerability.

    May 23, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Who We Are Now just ticks too many cliched boxes, particularly in the dialogue department.

Audience Reviews for Who We Are Now

  • Nov 29, 2018
    What's interesting is how Newton both undermines naive sentimentality about the world while simultaneously not indulging in cynicism which gives the movie a kind of hopeful realism. Julianne Nicholson should get more leading roles, this is one hell of a performance.
