All Critics (95) | Top Critics (24)

This is a movie about resignation and perseverance and the non-showy essence of life and love.

March 1, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

An engaging and well-acted drama that finds catharsis and hope in a terrible personal ordeal.

Top Critic

Despite strong performances by Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson, the domestic drama offers little beyond recounting the steps of diagnosis and treatment.

February 24, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

But here's the thing: Joan and Tom do come back from it. The couples who stay together figure out how to do that. Ordinary Love is an argument that, as hard as that is, it's worth it.

It's a bit like having a front row seat at being human.

Top Critic

"Ordinary Love" is not a movie solely about cancer. It is a raw, on-screen adaptation of what hundreds of couples experience when their limits are tested - physically, mentally and romantically.
