Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Unfortunately, courtesy of vacuous scripting and stilted performances, The Waiting City ultimately does precious little to have you caring.
Fresh: An ambitious debut by Claire McCarthy, in which she tries to find a cohesion between the earthly realities of the subject matter, the complexities of Indian life and the demanding emotional journey of a young married couple
Fresh: India is the best character in a touching if convoluted story.
Fresh: The Waiting City is an immersive film, but also a contemplative one.
This movie was a delight of the senses! It made me feel deeply & while it starts out slow, you soon begin to invest in the characters. It's like swimming in deep & sometimes murky waters. It left me breathless.
