Lucy in the Sky (2019)



Critic Consensus: Natalie Portman gives it her all, but it isn't enough to overcome Lucy in the Sky's confused approach to its jumbled story.

Critic Reviews for Lucy in the Sky

All Critics (122) | Top Critics (30)

It's proper acting, from one of the modern greats.

December 9, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

By failing to find the solid ground in [Lisa] Nowak's story, Lucy in the Sky leaves us stranded in the stars.

December 6, 2019 | Rating: 2/5

A flimsy, effortful project that simply has no footing either as fact or convincing fiction. It's in freefall from the word go.

December 5, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

[M]uch of "Lucy in the Sky," it doesn't connect down here on Earth and is caught somewhere in the cosmos.

October 11, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It's contemplative and meditative, sure, but it doesn't wind up saying anything.

October 11, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It's a deep-thinking character study that's provocatively if imperfectly presented - at least until the story devolves right along with its subject's state of mind.
