Critic Reviews for Mum's List

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

The film is an incoherent mess that may prove baffling to those unfamiliar with the source.

November 26, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It is managed with honesty, dignity and conviction, and there are very real moments of personal pain.

November 24, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The encounters with doctors and the hospital scenes are often chilling. Nonetheless, there is a plodding sentimentality and predictability here which stop the film from having the emotional kick that might have been expected.

Mum's List director Neill Johnson locks Rafe Spall in a very different version of hell, whose 101 minutes of footage weighed on the perception of this critic as if the amount had also been multiplied by a thousand. [Full Review in Spanish]

The scene at a dinner party in which Spall's Singe likens the pain of bereavement to struggling against the sea's undertow will knock you off your feet.

It's a tough watch but a powerful one, and beautifully acted not just by Fox and Spall but by William and Matthew Stagg, as their young sons. Well done, boys.
