My Days of Mercy (2017)



Critic Consensus: Though My Days of Mercy's knotty romance drifts into melodrama, it's grounded by Ellen Page and Kate Mara's exceptional chemistry.

Critic Reviews for My Days of Mercy

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5)

A well-meaning but increasingly contrived melodrama that is hardly believable or meaningful.

The effervescent chemistry between the two leads [saves] it from Sundance-y overearnestness.

Top Critic

The movie doesn't buckle under the weight of its ambitions, and in straining to find the light it ends up engaging and compelling - even if it is overly complex.

Top Critic

Produced as a vehicle for co-starring friends Ellen Page and Kate Mara, "Mercy" serves them both well, with critical support likely to help the film find an audience despite its challenging themes.

September 9, 2017 | Full Review…

Exerts a certain pull due to its unblinking evocation of bare-bones working class American life and the slow-burn relationship sensitively etched by Ellen Page and Kate Mara.

A kind romance with a stellar turn by Ellen Page
