The film... teeters between the staccato iciness of Harold Pinter and the momcore joy of Nancy Meyers without fully surrendering to either one of them...

As Leo, McCormack ably holds his own against his titan of a co-star, but the film is hers from start to finish.

Despite a sterling effort from Thompson, neither the comedy nor the character arcs are fully satisfying.

A spellbinding piece of filmmaking, an acting masterclass, a celebration of the written word, and a powerful cinematic plea for self-acceptance and self-love.
