Critic Reviews for A Date for Mad Mary

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (4)

Irish director Darren Thornton, with dynamo Seána Kerslake as Mary, delivers a canny blend of biting comedy and soulful drama

June 20, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

There are a few 19th century Scandinavian playwrights who might envy Thornton and Akram their gifts for moulding personae.

September 1, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Mad Mary is a delight, especially for its rounded supporting characters, its skewering use of language, and the pinpoint accuracy of its observations of life in this specific time and place.

August 29, 2016 | Full Review…

Kerslake and Lee leave enough of an impression to be able to use this film as a gateway to greater things.

August 29, 2016 | Full Review…

There are some delightfully unexpected moments - largely stemming from Mary's penchant for jeopardizing or even ruining whatever good things come her way.

September 15, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

A moody score brings the film's sombre tone together - not that this film isn't hilarious when it wants to be. A Date for Mad Mary is a great showcase for some of the best talent coming out of the Emerald Isle.
