Critic Reviews for NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (15)

As if screening filmed plays in cinemas wasn't perverse enough, here's a making-of for a long-gone theatrical event: the production of Richard III by Sam Mendes's Bridge Project that toured worldwide.

Top Critic

There is nothing that drives this film except a tone of inward-gazing self-importance, sweetened by the sentimental bonding of the play's cast and crew and Whelehan's touristy location shots.

May 15, 2014 | Rating: 2/4

It's that rare film that captures and conveys the romance of the theatrical experience.

May 8, 2014 | Full Review…

The camaraderie among the players, some of whom have interesting stories of their own, tends to shut out any sense of audience response, aside from the ovation that reliably greets the star as soon as he appears onstage.

May 8, 2014 | Full Review…

Over the course of the film, a sense of the cast's camaraderie comes through, the almost family feeling that takes over among people thrown together in such intimate circumstances.
