    Provost's film, like its heroine, is full of active, sparking nerves.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Abby Garnett
    Archambault is fluent in small, self-contained moments. Even as their guardians are forced into difficult conversations, Gabrielle and Martin's private exchanges ring true.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Abby Garnett
    Before You Know It is a chronicle of the challenges facing an aging portion of the population, but it doubles as something more universal: a means of cutting through isolation and societal expectation, and finding a stronger self on the other side.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Abby Garnett
    This story is about tenderness and empathy, including Carbee's for his plastic proxies.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Abby Garnett
    Shapiro seems far more invested than his subject in telling the story, which sometimes makes the film feel a bit underhanded.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Abby Garnett
    May in the Summer's biggest obstacle is Dabis, who isn't a strong enough actress to sell the subtle humor.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Abby Garnett
    Khaou creates a compelling tension between Whishaw's stricken, almost febrile performance and Cheng's stubbornly dignified one.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Abby Garnett
    This is a fascinating and often tumultuous story, which Haupt chronicles through a mixture of interviews with the real Ostertag and Rapp (now married, they appear as a pair) alongside dramatized vignettes that, as the film wears on, feel like annoying interruptions.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Abby Garnett
    The Love Punch is too sunny and self-effacing to be truly toxic.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Abby Garnett
    A lightweight Big Chill reworked for today's young professional set, which proves too clumsy and self-conscious to live up to its weighty subject matter.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Abby Garnett
    Despite a few dynamite scenes from Chastain, Miss Julie's cruelty is more potent than its craft.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Abby Garnett
    A self-aware psychopath is a tough character to humanize, especially when he's mired in a stylized jumble of comedy and tragedy.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 40 Abby Garnett
    The film is dragged down by its awkwardly paradoxical story, which tries too hard to care too little.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Abby Garnett
    I Am Happiness on Earth's script is mostly filler between explicit, intensely choreographed sex acts.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Abby Garnett
    It sounds like a recipe for comedy (and Kline seems to think so too, waltzing and prat-falling through Mathias's alcoholic foibles), but Horovitz's screenplay guns instead for an emotionally and financially tangled melodrama, and ends up feeling aggravatingly inconsistent.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Abby Garnett
    Daniel Cohen's Le Chef does little more than illuminate the superficiality of the restaurant business.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Abby Garnett
    In an alternate universe, this might be a cult hit; as it is, Albemuth will only be fun for diehards.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Abby Garnett
    Too low-stakes for horror, too lamebrained for satire, and too incoherent to be didactic, The Maid's Room simply uses Drina and then throws her away.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Abby Garnett
    Kruger and Clarke do their best to look steadfast with a camera swooping around them like a wounded bird, but there's no rescuing this imprecise family portrait from its own impulses toward obscurity.
