As Bernadette, Cate Blanchett is forced to do the work that Linklater doesn't devote to developing the story or characters.

August 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The script is an insult to the principle of adaptation: All that is good in the plot has been excised in favor of the shortest route to a happy ending.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette feels like it could have been a great film; the final result is not that, but it's at least a distinctive mess.

[Linklater] can't find a suitable form for Maria Semple's patchwork best seller...

August 16, 2019 | Full Review…

As troublesome and overstuffed as Blanchett's performance might be, it's also one of the few interesting things going on in this troublesome and overstuffed misfire of a book adaptation.

August 16, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Notably, this is the first Linklater movie to feature a solo female lead, and Bernadette instantly emerges as one of the most vibrant and complex characters in the director's filmography.
