Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It hits the right sentimental moments but doesn't truly touch hearts as it settles into courtroom drama mode. – Bruce Demara, Toronto Star, Oct 15, 2015

Rotten: Page and Julianne Moore, who plays Hester, have an easy if not electric chemistry, but they seem hamstrung by the movie-of-the-week tropes and Peter Sollett's plodding direction. – Simon Houpt, Globe and Mail, Oct 16, 2015

Fresh: Julianne Moore and Ellen Page deliver two terrific performances. You get a strong sense of the bond and connection that existed between their respective characters. – Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane, Nov 10, 2015

Fresh: The citizens-vs-city hall story has a distinct Frank Capra resonance to it, especially when a media-savvy gay activist, played superbly by Steve Carell, chimes in with his dial-a-crowd protesters. – Jim Schembri, 3AW, Nov 6, 2015
