Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: ... has nuance and complexity even in its seemingly throwaway title.
Rotten: ... there's something nihilistic about having to watch Sherry regress to her not-so-happy childhood the moment she gets home, and something alienating about the way in which her compulsions completely overshadow her personality.
Fresh: The wonder of Sherrybaby is that we can admire Sherry's exuberance and evident love of life -- and the extraordinary actress who portrays her -- without really being sure where she's going.
Fresh: The film works. It doesn't go soft or inspirational in its later stages, when most films would. It doesn't pump up the redemption or the melodrama.
definitly a great movie
This may be one of those movies that you never heard of but its a great heartbreaking story. I came to see it by accident and it really touched me. Excelent acting. Great story that keeps you interested the whole movie.
A great performance by Maggie Gyllenhaal!
I loved this movie because of how well Maggie Gyllenhaal can show her emotions in this very sad film she gave me a reason to watch this film.
