Critic Reviews for Daisy Miller

Bogdanovich's bravura display of directorial style is as insightful as it is thrilling.

The first and perhaps the final question to be asked about Peter Bogdanovich's adaptation of Henry James' novella is just why he chose to embark on it.

April 2, 2020 | Full Review…

It is hard to determine to whom [director Peter Bogdanovich] has done the greater disservice: to his author, by assuming he could bring him to the screen, or to his inamorata, by assuming he could get her to act.

By Bogdanovich turning the whole story into one that turns on fast-paced comic repartee, he leans the material into Shepherd's strengths.

Peter Bogdanovich's new film, Daisy Miller, like its title character, is lovely to look at but not quite delightful to know.

... a love story to which Cybill Sherpard and Barry Brown lend an exact and definitive charm. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Daisy Miller


Cybill Shepard, a fine comedienne in future years and a capable dramatic actress when the part is right, is hopelessly miscast here and throws the entire picture out of balance. Beautiful settings and cinematography and excellent performances from Eileen Brennan, Cloris Leachman and Mildred Natwick offset the damage somewhat but its still a miss.
