Ratings & Reviews

  1. lbunuel's rating of the film Secrets & Lies

    Fine film, charming, good-natured, empathetic. But it lacks Leigh's usual eye for the "larger world" around the characters, the abstract concepts that elevate films like Naked and Another Year way above your usual slice of life fare into a complicated arrangement of ideology, emotion, angst, happiness, and despair.

  2. Armina Stepan's rating of the film Secrets & Lies

    It's rare for a film maker to care about all of the characters equally. He goes to great lengths to show the child that wants to be loved in each of them, even in the ones that show up on camera for only about 15 seconds. What a masterpiece of empathy and storytelling.

  3. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Secrets & Lies

    Brenda Blethyn gives one of the greatest performances I have ever seen in a film. It probably helps that Mike Leigh — one of our greatest living directors — is so good with his casts.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Secrets & Lies

    Oeuvre émouvante, d'une délicate présence humaine, magnifiquement réalisée et interprétée, revue près d'une vingtaine d'années plus tard, confirmant bien sûr notre premier "diagnostic" mais avec un certain bémol. En effet, quelques scènes trop longues et certains moments dramatiques surjoués, surtout de la part de Brenda Blethyn et de Claire Rushbrook, tempèrent légèrement l'enthousiasme initial. www.cinefiches.com

  6. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film Secrets & Lies

    An unflinching portrait of human relations and malaise in society. It talks about regrets, family and obviously, secrets and lies. I love that there is a comedic undertone. The theme of the mask that each one puts on their face when in society is well illustrated in the photo shoots montages. This film is extremely well cast. Especially Brenda Blethyn and Timothy Spall. A masterpiece that deserves its Palme d'Or.

  7. Myles's rating of the film Secrets & Lies

    "Sweeeeeeetheart!" I <3 Mike Leigh. This whole movie is like a delicious session of eavesdropping.

  9. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Secrets & Lies

    Such a beautiful film! It's a story about the most dysfunctional family you could ever imagine, each of them going about their days bottling up all the sadness and anger, keeping the truth from each other. The 'secrets & lies' that have torn them apart for so long are what bring them together in the end. Superbly acted, Blethyn and Spall deliver especially raw performances. You just can't help getting sucked in.
