Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Friel apart, the making of the film is impressive. In addition to Streep, her sisters are as vital as the script allows. – Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic, Jan 5, 2018

Great Movie

Great story. Meryl Streep is absolutely fantastic as always!

Good, but where's the soundtrack?

This was a truly wonderful movie. But I want the movie soundtrack! The Irish dancing music was totally awesome in the scene where all of the Mundy sisters went outside and started dancing together,and I want that song really badly! 
