[Boasts] sly wit, charm and gorgeous black-and-white Scottish seascapes.

Top Critic

Gorgeously shot, whimsically scripted and acted, a dated delight from start to finish.

March 27, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

...Mackendrick allows no illusions that the crew of The Maggie are anything but criminals.

March 24, 2020 | Full Review…

Ealing films stand out because the wit has bite and consequently the stories have sting. Rarely, though, are they mean-spirited, which isn't the case with The Maggie.

March 14, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Here the director has been very successful in capturing the particular mixture of canniness and humour, petty deceitfulness and honesty.

February 5, 2018 | Full Review…

The Ealing comedy is gentle sailing.
