Critic Reviews for Woman in a Dressing Gown
The most affecting aspect of the film is its sense of compassion: we're never asked to condemn or condone, merely to understand.
The facile ending, with its suggestion of "happy ever after", is in line with the compromising attitude of the film as a whole; and rings entirely false.
[A] stilted, patronising British movie about working-class and lower-middle-class life...
This is both a reminder of British sexual mores in the darker days of the Fifties and one of the first attempts in a genre that was later referred to as kitchen-sink drama.
A film that deserves to be better known and a welcome reminder of what a fine actress the late Yvonne Mitchell was.
