  • [New – 11/12/15] | Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: An enchanting costume drama about beauty, flowers, love, grief, and impermanence.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Rickman’s film holds many charms, not the least of which is his own performance as the King who would be commoner for one fantastical afternoon.
  • Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: Though admirable that Rickman offers up an atypical female character in De Barra, one who does not locate her self-worth in the success of her relationship or her man’s career, no attempt is made to holistically integrate her estimable individuality into the reality of the 17th Century French society as it truly was. This translates into a fundamental disingenuity that results in A LITTLE CHAOS coming off as a kind of denial of feminism.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: All of it feels haphazardly assembled.
  • Kenji Fujishima @ Slant Magazine
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: Romantic and funny and smart and wise and just plain different. This is a historical costume dramedy romp about gardening. How cool is that?
  • Alan Mattli @ Facing the Bitter Truth [German]
    • Excerpt: Slight to the point of weightlessness, Alan Rickman’s sophomore directing effort is a pleasant enough stroll through Louis XIV’s royal gardens.
  • Jason Pirodsky @
    • Excerpt: A sumptuously filmed period piece from Alan Rickman (his second film as director after 1997’s The Winter Guest), A Little Chaos might be lightweight in conception, but it’s brought to vivid life through some evocative atmosphere and a pair of sympathetic performances in the lead.
  • Jonathan Richards @
    • Excerpt: There’s sabotage, skullduggery, wit, struggle, and eventual triumph, all bathed in beauty by cinematographer Ellen Kuras.
  • Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
    • Excerpt: A special period movie treat with many lovely scenes and outstanding performances.
  • Sarah Ward @ Concrete Playground
