Movie Info

In bizarre, unrelated turns of events, Ray and Helen each happen upon large sums of money which give them the chance to re-invent themselves. As they fake their way to the high life, their paths cross, each falling for the other's "new-and-improved" persona. But as their true selves shine through the act, Ray and Helen find themselves falling in love with the very qualities they are trying to hide in themselves.

Critic Reviews for Ray Meets Helen

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Moviegoers expecting a sprightly golden-years romance have come to the wrong place. So have those looking for a moody but credible reflection on decades of regrets.

Comprising multiple, loosely interwoven plot threads united as much by the characters' lyrical speech patterns as their end-of-life longings, "Ray Meets Helen" has a wistful, whimsical sophistication that has all but disappeared from movies.

May 3, 2018 | Full Review…

While it bears many of the thematic and stylistic hallmarks that made Rudolph a reliable figure on the '80s indie scene with such films as "Choose Me" and "Trouble in Mind," this mannered character study comes across as more affected than affecting.

May 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Trying to balance whimsical romantic fantasy with a melancholy examination of guilt and regret, the film struggles to make its characters likeable or believable.

"Ray Meets Helen is political in the sense that matters most. It goes beneath the surface of its characters' differences to show what they have in common - what makes them soul mates."

Sadly, the magic doesn't happen this time for Alan Rudolph, a very special filmmaker whose specialty has always been romance among the lost.
