Excerpt: Michell and Kureishi’s film is interesting and somewhat likable, though it is unsure how serious or silly it wants to be. It needs the rigour of Richard Linklater but the apparent adulation for Godard is a nice touch.
Excerpt: This insightful comedy drama is at its strongest when it focuses solely on the main duo and thankfully Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan’s brilliant performances are there to carry the film squarely on their shoulders and, most importantly, make you believe in their well-worn love-hate relationship. In that respect the film succeeds at what it sets out to do.
Excerpt: As good as Broadbent and Duncan are, and both are truly marvelous, the arrival on the scene of the less nuanced but ebullient Goldblum comes as a welcome shot in the arm for a movie that is beginning to feel the weight of their rocky marriage.
