Critic Reviews for The Whales of August
Here is a quiet film of a conventional story, a star vehicle designed to show everyone to advantage.
A quiet, unassuming masterpiece that deserves to be cherished,
This is not my cup of tea, but it is a fascinating last picture show for a likeable legendary acting troupe.
The names of Lillian Gish, Bette Davis and Vincent Price will never be forgotten by film lovers. The Whales of August, on the other hand, surely will be.
Audience Reviews for The Whales of August
This stuffy drama will interest anyone who likes movies about the elderly, but other wise, I'd say stay away from it. It's very boring, slow, and by the middle, I didn't care about the story anymore.
