Critic Reviews for Where'd You Go, Bernadette

All Critics (191) | Top Critics (50)

These themes have preoccupied Linklater through his whole career -- and while Where'd You Go, Bernadette may not be one of his peaks, it shows he's still bent on approaching them in new ways.

July 17, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

[I]n a cinematic landscape where stories of women finding themselves are too few and far between, Where'd You Go, Bernadette is a welcome gift, even if it's an imperfect one.

January 19, 2020 | Full Review…

Basically a miscalculation from end to end, full of bizarre narrative turns and inexplicable craft decisions. Yet there's never any question that Linklater is fully committed, and it's hard to consider a movie "bad" that's made with this much care.

September 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Bernadette is a vibrant creative spirit, and Blanchett blithely gives the character her all.

September 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

As Bernadette, Cate Blanchett is forced to do the work that Linklater doesn't devote to developing the story or characters.

August 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Linklater understands that it's not where you ended up but what brought you there - and what you do when you get there - that really matters.
