Critic Reviews for Shirley
The film is so performatively uncomfortable in its own skin that you may find it struggles to worm its way under yours.
Shirley is sensuous and beguiling, an act of pure witchcraft.
There are heavy dollops of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? here, but without the campy histrionics.
Together, Moss and Stuhlbarg epitomise a very horrible masculine and feminine mystique.
Don't trust me is the message - one underlined by the cutting of the film, meant to make you lose your footing. And then there is Moss, teeth and intellect bared in a snarl, as ever in an acting category all of her own.
