Movie Reviews

  • the two leads (Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan)are watchable enough, but the script keeps their characters emotionally separated, so you never see anything remotely like chemistry between them
    2.5 of 5 by Steve Davis [Austin Chronicle ]
  • the protagonists are dull, courtly stereotypes of star-crossed lovers; Jamie Dornan is a stiff whom Jon Hamm immediately upstages, and this dynamic underscores why the film is so tedious and unsatisfying
    1.5 of 4 by Chuck Bowen [Slant Magazine ]
  • the gentle spirit of "Wild Mountain Thyme" envelops us early, to the extent that, midway through, even though there is very little left to resolve, we are in its spell; light or not, it's a spell, nonetheless, and it will leave you with a warm feeling
    3 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • the film takes such a circuitous route down a familiar path, and does so with such wit and eccentricity, that the experience as a whole becomes harder and harder to resist
    by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap ]
  • Shanley's 2014 play "Outside Mullingar" was a mellow charmer. But the light touch, the structural economy and lyrical voice that buoyed the gentle four-character piece on stage become cloying and strained in this clumsy expansion
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a clumsy adaptation of John Patrick Shanley's play "Outside Mullingar"; it's a visually verdant but emotionally flat film whose confusing friction between two miscast leads frustrates rather than engrosses
    2 of 5 by Adrian Horton [The Guardian ]
  • "Wild Mountain Thyme" is the kind of film you want to love, just as you want these two characters to fall in love, and it's simultaneously exasperating and original that they don't go about their courtship in the usual fashion
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
