  1. Savanna Ruedy's rating of the film Albatross

    That was the biggest waste of my time I'm confused why I even finished watching this.

  2. Sara Gaspar's rating of the film Albatross

  3. Levi Miah's rating of the film Albatross

    Half a quite good coming of age film (thanks to the female leads), half a terrible mid-life crisis film and the soundtrack was gratingly bad and might have been part of the problem.

  4. Ross's rating of the film Albatross

    Jessica Brown Finlay made an excellent debut performance

  5. ehk2's rating of the film Albatross

    The definition of abominable, except, of course, lovely 27 smt Felicity Jones playing 17, somewhere in south coast with tourist panorama, looking like Isle of Man ad. Horrible. Terrible. Every single thing is just simply, plainly wrong. And that 'creative writing' stuff! You know, that is the root of all those crab in bookshelves emanating from that inner inspiration gas.

  6. Emmet Holmes-Boyes's rating of the film Albatross

    Interesting topic but the stereotypes of each character quickly become boring. Hard to believe any of the characters motivations. I felt like i was waiting for Hugh Grant to play a cameo role as another rival British author.

  7. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film Albatross

  8. alimcintyre's rating of the film Albatross

    Worth watching just for Jessica Brown Findlay. A star is born.

  9. Steve G.'s rating of the film Albatross

    Still no clearer on turkey ham.

  10. Superfrog's rating of the film Albatross

    First 30 minutes are pretty great. The middle 30 disappointing but probably calling a fantasy of sorts. The last 20 an OK wind down. Not a masterpiece but not the trainwreck the current score seems to indicate. Female lead is pretty impressive in the role am rings true.

  11. harnake36@gmail.com's rating of the film Albatross

    very funny in parts, well written

  12. Al Green's rating of the film Albatross

    The script was okay , as was Jessica Brown Findlay's character, but overall there were too many clich├ęs for this to bring any surprises.

  13. chazell's rating of the film Albatross

  14. Janina's rating of the film Albatross

    I'm not quite sure if it was supposed to be light and funny or deep and though-provoking but am afraid whatever it was creators of it didn't really succeeded to accomplish. Half baked filled with cliches and a shallow sauce of cheap "meaningfulness" poured all over it.

  15. smndvdcl's rating of the film Albatross

    Flashes of genius with its sardonic dialogue. The derogatory undermining of a literary pseud as a 'procrasturbator' is a particularly acerbic portmanteau. However, the character arc, filmmaking nous and narrative development remains fairly rote. Worth a watch if not cinematic golddust.

  16. NICOLE86's rating of the film Albatross

    This film didn't didn't know what it was. Was it a midlife crisis film? A coming of age film? It tried to be all of these things but was missing something to make it special.

  17. Teresa Silva's rating of the film Albatross

    I swear to god both of them are impossible to tell apart.

  18. Cosmin Marius's rating of the film Albatross

    life has a funny way of putting things and people on the right track.

  19. naive3's rating of the film Albatross

    It seemed promising, but it was actually mediocre and characters were painfully flat.

  20. AmeenaMohd's rating of the film Albatross

    Some beautiful shots in a mediocre film. Wish there had been better character development in many respects. As a fan of coming-of-age story lines, I feel like this is worth viewing at least once (especially if you like any of the actors, such as Sebastian Koch).

  21. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Albatross

    Painfully flat mixture of coming of age drama and mid life crisis comedy about an aspiring young writer who begins an affair with her bookish best friend's father, a famous writer. One cliche after another, and hampered by an awful script, the film was a lot better when it was called AMERICAN BEAUTY.
