Wiig's underplaying, a repressed otherworldly Sissy Spacek sort of thing, has its moments of humor, but this proud, simple woman is never for an instant comic.

Review, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2014-05-01

 

It doesn't take long for us to get lost in Wiig's thorough portrayal of a dowdy housekeeper who must soldier on in the face of a cruel prank to find some kind of love in her life.

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 2014-05-01

 

Liza Johnson's nicely tuned, and turned, adaptation of the Alice Munro short story "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage."

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2014-04-25

 

We've never seen a protagonist quite like Johanna, who on the one hand personifies female self-abnegation at its most domesticated, but on the other embodies the sheer will at its most stubborn.

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, 2014-04-24

 

Short fiction can be a marvelous blueprint for film and revisiting Nobel Prize-winner Munro's story in this era of "catfishing" makes a lot of sense: People are no less desperate for connection than they ever have been.

Connie Ogle, Miami Herald, 2014-04-24

 

The buttoned-up, buttoned-lipped Wiig seems to have landed in the Midwest from Mars, as though, like David Bowie before her, she's The Maid Who Fell to Earth

Amy Nicholson, L.A. Weekly, 2014-04-18

 

"Kristen Wiig's performance in "Hateship Loveship" is so beautifully muted it takes a while to appreciate the loveliness of the notes she's hitting."

Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com, 2014-04-17

 

The people on screen are all worth watching, as is Johnson's directorial career.

Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, 2014-04-17

 

This is a movie in which our worst pulp expectations are constantly being upended.

Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, 2014-04-11

 

It's amazing how much this film does accomplish, given its modesty of both means and scale.

Dana Stevens, Slate, 2014-04-10

 

An absorbing, messy, modest story of damaged relationships.

A.O. Scott, New York Times, 2014-04-10

 

Kristin Wiig's turn as a dowdy caretaker is the highlight of this contemporary American take on Cinderella.

Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter, 2014-04-07

 

Liza Johnson makes fine, steady progress with this delicate and absorbing character study starring Kristen Wiig.

Justin Chang, Variety, 2013-09-09

 

Rather than sifting through the emotional layers of a surprisingly determined young woman, more often the scenes feel drained of life.

Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 2014-04-17

 

This jumbled drama gets decent mileage out of actress Kristen Wiig but is hindered by a subpar script that fails to translate Munro's characterizations and intricate plotting to the screen.

Drew Hunt, Chicago Reader, 2014-04-17

 

What's supposed to be guileless and unformed starts to feel like shtick.

Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2014-04-14

 

When a script can't give even a drugged-out Jennifer Jason Leigh a tasty scene to chew on, it's playing just a little too nice.

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 2014-04-11

 

I hope this is Wiig's last sad-sack turn; it seems a waste to ignore those comic chops in the pursuit of this sort of Serious Acting.

Sara Stewart, New York Post, 2014-04-10

 

Too bad "blahship" isn't an option. Because that sums it up.

Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, 2014-04-10

 

A preposterous wish-fulfillment fantasy with an enormous void at its center.

Mike D'Angelo, AV Club, 2014-04-10
