Hope Gap (2020)



Critic Consensus: Annette Bening and Bill Nighy are just about worth the price of admission, but Hope Gap lacks enough depth to really leave an impact.

The trouble with opening up this story for long walks on the beach? It seems to flatten out with the tide.

None of it lacks credibility. As a portrait of the breakup of a marriage, and the three-cornered pain of the situation, it's completely convincing.

Diehard fans of Nicholson will probably suck it up. For the rest of us, this is hopeless.

A coastal breath of fresh air, but Bening should ditch the accent.

The performances are terrific, especially from Bening who adds yet another deeply nuanced study to her gallery of complicated, smart women of a certain age.

Though the cast gamely delivers each idea ... Hope Gap never seems to grasp the crucial differences between theatre and film.
