Critic Reviews for Supernova

All Critics (197) | Top Critics (50)

his is an intense, intimate, spare film about love, grief and dementia, and the two leads, who play a gay couple, are superb.

July 29, 2021 | Full Review…

The film has plenty of low-key charm and humour, not least in Sam and Tusker's believable, tetchy in-car interactions.

June 28, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Firth and Tucci's performances are remarkable in how delicately they navigate this maze of half-truths and suppressed emotions, all crammed inside their rusty campervan.

June 25, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A terrific piece of writing about the difficulties of living on the fringes of a catastrophe - acknowledging the danger, but rarely addressing the true terrors that await.

June 25, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The real impact of the film, however, comes from the leads' performances.

June 24, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Some directors go an entire career without making anything decent -- whereas Macqueen has directed half a good film, and shaped dauntless performances from Firth and Tucci, on only his second go.
